Quilts of Valor
The Nebraska National Guard would like to give a BIG THANK YOU for those who participated in the 2012 Nebraska 4-H Quilts of Valor Challenge. The National Quilts of Valor Regional Director Sara Kenny took the 40 Quilts Of Valor quilts home, washed them, placed them in pillowcases and read the stories that 4-Hers wrote. She presented them to the Nebraska National Guard who is very thankful to receive them. Lori Neumann from the National Guard says "Please Thank the 4-H group for all of their hard work! The Service Members will be so excited to receive one of these quilts. The notes from the kids are a nice touch!"
Below is a photo of National Guardsmen receiving the quilts.Remember, that in 2013 the Nebraska 4-H Quilts of Valor Challenge will continue. If your county has not already received some of the free fabric or would like to do additional quilts, please contact Julie in Adams County. Click here for guidelines.

Rain Garden Design
Rain gardens are aesthetic and functional landscape features that retain rainwater, provide beauty and habitat, and can reduce water runoff from your property. Water collected in the rain garden slowly infiltrates into the soil to support plant growth and lessen runoff into storm drains according to UNL Extension Specialists Tom Franti and Steve Rodie. Homeowners can learn more from the new “Rain Garden Design” interactive Extension publication.
