A roundup of 4-H news for the week of April 12, 2012:


JEFFERSON, Ohio — The Sew Sew Sweet 4-H Club worked together April 1 to make 200 placemats for the Department of Aging.

After the group discussed everything they needed to and played a game, it didn’t take them more then an hour to finish the placemats.

Sew Sew Sweet is a very active group. This isn’t their first community service project, but their second, and they would like to do more.

The group plans on going to JoAnne Fabrics in Hudson, Ohio On April 6. Sew Sew Sweet would like to thank Ashtabula for holding an officer workshop at Ohio State University Extension office.
