LAKEPORT, Calif. – Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. marked the start of the ceremony honoring Lake County's veterans at Konocti Vista Casino and 4-H was there.

In fact, the 4-H organization has played a role in thanking local veterans for more than 25 years.

Each November 4-H clubs throughout the county make handcrafted thank you cards to pass out to veterans attending the event.

Many 4-H youth participate year after year because they love being able to interact and thank all of the service men and women that have done so much for this county.

The local veterans are always so appreciative when the cards are handed out to them.

As one 4-H member noted, "I have been doing this event for five years now and it makes me proud to do this ceremony and to recognize those who fought for this country."

More information about the 4-H organization is available online at http://celake.ucanr.edu/4-H_Program/ or the UC Cooperative Extension Office at 707-263-6838.

Jaden Bussard is a member of the Blue Heron 4-H Club.
