Youth Action Day-November
Youth Action Day is intended to promote intergenerational activities.  Klassy Kids 4-H group joined North Baltimore Gleaner members at Walmart in Bowling Green on November 13 to shop for items to be donated to the community.  Each child and adult were given $10 to shop for items.  Then, each 4-H member was paired with a Gleaner member(s) to look for ideas together.  I do not know who had more fun, the adults or the children.
