Sangre de Cristo Peaks 4-H Club serves community

VALLEY — On June 6th, the Sangre de Cristo Peaks 4-H Club planted flowers in planters on Worth Street in Center. 

The members — Ashlyn Rockey, Makenzie Consaul, Jordan Lobato, Ellaree Rockey, Matthew Voss, and Rayna Gonzalez — filled 36 pots with beautiful flowers and the promise of summer.

Center Town Manager Joan Mobley stated, “They did such a wonderful job. People keep remarking on how lovely the flower pots look.”

At the May meeting of the Sangre de Cristo Peaks 4-H Club the seven members made 20 toiletry bags. Each member brought 20 of an item they thought would be a blessing – toothpaste, toothbrush, washcloth, sunscreen, lip balm, soap, deodorant, comb. Each of these items were placed in a gallon zip lock bag and club members loaded the bags into a box that they delivered to Miss Delsa at Valley Wide Health’s Farm Workers Program. 

Each of the members presented a demonstration to those in attendance:

Jordan Lobato – soil sampling

Kristine Hoffner – home made silly putty

Ashlyn Rockey – ballet bun

Matthew Voss – gun safety

Rayna Gonzales – rainbow loom bracelet

Ellaree Rock – peanut butter and jelly sandwich

Makenzie Consaul – inserting contact lenses
