Community Service - Popplewood 4-H

We had a very fun day today with 4-H.  About 2 weeks ago, several members got together and we made 72 of these cute Nativity sets to give away at the Homme Home (nursing home) in Wittenberg, WI.  Idea off pinterest - but modified.  We attached the note to them too.


 
Then today, we went to the Homme Home, sang Christmas carols, read from Luke 2 and passed out the Nativity sets.  
 

 

 
One of my little 4-Hrs asked "can we go back next week?"  She received a hug from a resident.  This was her first experience with this type of "service."  The activity director told us that they don't get too many clubs or groups coming in like this.  On the ride back to our meeting, we talked about maybe doing a "game night" or BINGO.  If you have some extra time, I would encourage you to go volunteer or visit at a facility like this one.  It is so rewarding to brighten someone's day - in turn it will do the same for you. 
 
Merry Christmas and Blessings from Ringle, WI.
