Members of the Delta County 4-H Hot Shots are ready for work.
Club members Drew Harris, president; Derrek Johnson, county council president; and Ryan Gibson, club treasurer, attended the BoCC meeting last week with their club advisor, John Harris.
The 4-H Hot Shots are making themselves available for community service work and they wanted to know if the county has any projects they could undertake.
The club, formed around participation in the 4-H shooting sports program, will be working with other 4-H'ers on a cleanup project at the Eckert shooting sports facility.
The club's members have also tended to American flags on the graves of veterans during holidays. They were at the commissioners' meeting Monday, "just looking for more good ideas" for improving the community.
They got a couple of suggestions. Improvements at the fairgrounds are on the county's bucket list of projects including some grounds work and horseshoe pits.
Commissioners also asked the 4-H'ers if there were any projects at the fairgrounds they themselves could suggest that might make the facility, a focus of 4-H activity, more accessible and useful.
