Due to Marais des Cygnes Valley USD 456 being in remote learning, the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club opted to forgo their December meeting, yet at the same time the members still wanted to follow through with the care packages they annually send to service men and women who will be unable to come home for the holiday season.

Dec. 6, 2020, club members dropped off their care packages supplies. From those supplies, eight very full care packages were sent off to deserving men and women as a small thank you for everything they do.
