4-H gives youth opportunities for long-term relationships

By Michelle Beran
 
A credit card company ran a series of commercials a few years ago that listed the cost of several activities and ended with the related experience as “priceless”. 4-H Youth Development could not function without volunteers. We often think of the county fair as the culmination of 4-H projects and volunteers are certainly visible serving as superintendents, setting up and cleaning up, distributing flyers and much more.

Serve up a helping of gratitude

By Jamie Rathbun
 
Thanksgiving is a holiday that often challenges our nutrition goals, but it may be the healthiest holiday for our mental health, as we benefit from the consequences of giving thanks. Cultivating an “attitude of gratitude” has been linked to better health, more sound sleep, less anxiety and depression, higher longterm satisfaction with life, and kinder behavior toward others.
