Ambassadors Spend Day at The Greenbrier

Our 4-H Ambassadors have done a wide variety of community service projects the past two years. On April 14, 2022, we celebrated their hard work with a fun and educational trip to The Greenbrier due to the generous support of various donors. The youth had the opportunity to do a historical walking tour, a tour of the Bunker, a visit to the President’s Cottage, lunch at Drapers, and afternoon tea.
