North Fork 4-H Club started spring off with a bang.
On April 1, the club, in conjunction with North Fork Disposal and Recycling, held a recycling collection at the Clinton Hedrick Building in Riverton. Lots of items were collected from 4-H members and people throughout the community. Five hundred pounds of plastic film had previously been collected by the club and with the help of Becky Heavner it was submitted to the TREX company in Moorefield. As a result, the club earned a bench that was donated to North Fork Elementary School.
North Fork 4-H, along with the Spruce Mountain Ruritan Club, hosted an Easter egg hunt April 8 at North Fork Elementary School. More than 1,000 eggs were hidden, and 20 children from the community participated. Attendees were asked to bring a nonperishable food item to donate to CAN. Forty-one items were collected. The names of those donating items were entered into a raffle for an Easter basket full of goodies. Ellie Huffman won the basket.
