Garden Club presents donation

Members of the Buckingham-Dillwyn Garden Club recently presented 4-H Extension Agent Ruth Wallace with a donation to provide four youth with partial scholarships to 4-H Camp.

At camp, youth develop confidence, a sense of independence, good decision-making skills and group interaction skills — all in addition to the many technical skills they learn in classes — such as how to swim, how to paddle a canoe, intricate details involved in leathercraft and an appreciation for nature.

Approximately 30 percent of the youth who attend 4-H Camp from Buckingham County receive some sort of financial assistance. Donations, such as the one made by the Garden Club, are very much appreciated by camp organizers.
