Community service and leadership are important components in 4-H. Washington County senior 4-H’er Johannah Vittetoe recently excelled in both of these areas with the goal to provide first aid kits for all Washington County 4-H and Clover Kid clubs.

After the fall 4-H leaders’ training on risk management, Vittetoe, member of the Washington Go-Getters, saw that each 4-H club needed their own first aid kit to have on hand at meetings and on field trips. 4-H club leaders already volunteer time and personal resources, so she wanted to provide them for each club.

To complete this goal, Vittetoe researched several different possible supplies for the first aid kits, compared costs and placed an order so each of the 26 clubs in Washington County would have their own.

“It was great working with Beans Pharmacy for this project,” said Vittetoe. “I can’t thank them enough for their help and discount.”

Vittetoe presented her project and first aid kits to leaders and club members at the 4-H Award & Family Fun Night, Saturday, Nov. 3. 4-H and Clover Kid leaders are encouraged to stop by the Washington County Extension Office to pick up their first aid kit.
