The Perry Pathfinders 4-H Club recently completed its first service project, creating five tied blankets and delivering them to U.S. military veterans.

Kendra Woehl and Rebecca Francis are co-leaders of the 10-member Perry Pathfinders. The 4-H group gathered at the Crossroads Church for the blanket tying, which took about 90 minutes.

“Marcus Nelsen was the one who brought the idea to the club, to make tie blankets and donate them to the VA,” Woehl said. “This was our first project that was suggeted and planned by the youth in the club, so we were really excited to see it in action.”

The Pathfinders are planning a bake sale and some other fundraisers for the near future, she said.

Anyone interested in joining the Perry Pathfinders 4-H Club should contact Woehl at 515-230-9957 or Francis at 712-441-4327.
