The North Harford 4-H Club recently initiated and executed a substantial improvement project at 4-H Camp at the Rocks.
Members and their families created a large beautification garden from the ground up. The newly landscaped area, that includes large rocks and perennials, has improved the area surrounding the popular swimming pool, and it is also adjacent to Deer Creek Overlook, the camp's newest facility available for rent to the public.
The club members worked during several sessions to give back to the camp that has given to them.
Club members said they wanted to thank those who donated to the project. Without the help of Wilson's Farm Market, Greenspring Nursery, Grier Nursery, Kefauver Lumber, Heston's Greenhouse, T&M Mulch, Davis Excavating, Cindy Poteet/Curves of Whiteford, Women of the Moose - Bel Air Chapter, Mary Martello, Kim Bachman and Berg's Farm, the garden wouldn't have been possible as this was an enormous project for the club, organizers said.
The club members and families that participated were Brooke, Nicole and David Sexton and parents Kim and Dave, Paul and Bridget Sawyers and parents Dave and Denise, Julia Burkheimer and Dad Tom Burkheimer, Azalee and Angeline Emmel and parents Hank and Wanda, Ryan Smetana and Dad Billy, Jennifer Nance and parents Jason and MaryBeth and grandparents, Bob and Flo, Betsy Grebe, Lydia Braun, Elizabeth Galbreath, Tommy and Elisabeth Holmes and Mom Rachel, Maddie and Elie Fraiji, and Mom Mary Martello, Mary, Iain, Caleb and Emily Olsen and Mom Beth, Andrey Miller and Mom Tammy, Lea Mosely and Dad Rich, Amanda and Rhiannon Lietuvnikas and parents Andreana and Dave and TJ, Timmy and Travis Raab and mom Tracy.
4-H is an equal opportunity and access program.
