Spreading Christmas Cheer
Article written by 4-H Reporter Malachi Church (Son of Kym Kemp)
On December 23rd, Miranda 4-H Club members spread a little Christmas cheer through the Southern Humboldt community.
First, they helped decorate the Mateel Community Center in Redway for the Community Christmas Dinner held at noon today.They strung lights, put up signs, chairs, tables, set up flower vases and a Christmas tree. After decorating they practiced for their guest appearance at the Skilled Nursing Facility at the Garberville Hospital. Later, about 10 club members went to Jerold Phelps Community Hospital in Garberville and sang Christmas carols. Then they gathered inside at the Skilled Nursing Facility. Some community members that perform at the facility every Friday brought out their own instruments and joined in. Some of the residents just listened. Others sang along. Afterwards the club members and the residents were offered cookies and other delicious treats by the nursing staff.
Thank you 4-H kids for helping others have a merry Christmas.
