Club Completes Community Service Project

On April 25, 2020 the Henry County Sharp Shooters had their annual trash pick-up day.  There were many roads and many families involved.  Each family took a road so they could stay socially distance from each other.  The club picked up several miles of liter around the Maumee Valley Sportsmen’s Club where the Sharp Shooters meet for 4-H.  In total 33 bags of liter and 280 lbs of waste were collected.  Great Job HCSS!

More Community Service... In Club Members' Focused Community

Henry County Sharp Shooters are working on some community service projects.  They have had to come up with some creative ways to help around the community since Covid-19 has limited their usual events.
