4-H celebrates 100th birthday at the Dixie Classic Fair
When people hear that Jessica Goodard belongs to a 4-H club, they often say something along the lines of "Isn't that like planting stuff?"
"No," she tells them, "it's community service."
For Jessica, a home-schooled high-school senior from Germanton who belongs to the Trailblazer Teens 4-H Club, 4-H is about such projects as playing music at nursing homes and helping to get shoeboxes filled with goodies for children in other countries at Christmas.
"I've always had a passion for community service," she said.
