Henderson County 4-H Upcoming Events
The Dana Wildcats 4-H Club is collecting gently used children’s books for the Little Free Library that they will place at the Dana Community Park. The purpose of the library is “take a book, leave a book,” but the 4-H club plans to have extra books to keep the library stocked. They will also label the books and make bookmarks. Please deliver books to Dana Elementary School, 690 Ridge Rd, Hendersonville, NC, and note that they are for the Dana Wildcats 4-H Club.
