Donations to 4-H Betterment Project at Fair Grounds

Members of the Cherokee Cavaliers 4-H Club were at The Gathering Place on Friday to help Christmas shoppers by gift-wrapping presents and making Christmas ornaments and decorations for their homes this yuletide season.

In addition to helping the members of the community, the 4-H members will also benefit, as the voluntary donations given by the grateful shoppers will go directly to the ongoing Betterment Project at the Cherokee County Fair Grounds.

Santa and Mrs. Claus were there for children at The Gathering Place Friday, too. In this photo, Santa proudly holds his grandson, and has high expectations for the young man, calling him the "future Santa Claus" and also "the future of 4-H." Photo by Dan Whitney
