Goat Club Plants Trees for Earth Day 2009

Members of the 4-H Goat Club completed a tree-planting community service project recently in honor of Earth Day. Service Committee Chairman Zachary Williby organized this project on the grounds of Lightfoot Elementary School. Zachary communicated with the school's principal, and placed the order for white oak, red oak, and kousa dogwood seedlings provided to 4-H'ers free of charge by the Virginia Department of Forestry. On Saturday, April 25, Goat Club members met at the school with local forester Erik Filep, and planted seedlings. This project coincided with Earth Day (Week) festivities. The club is to be commended for this great project!
