Lord Baltimore Helping Hands 4-H club

The Lord Baltimore Helping Hands 4-H club began 65 years ago, as an offshoot from an afterschool program at Lord Baltimore Elementary School. Carlene Jones began as a parent volunteer, and when the original leader stepped down, Carlene took the reins. She began the 4-H club as we know it now and continues to attend every meeting and club event!


Because Lord Baltimore Helping Hands has members from both farm and residential areas, the youth are involved in many different project areas. The youth have worked in foods and nutrition, photography, computer science, leadership, community service, clothing and textiles, dance, woodworking, small animals, horse and first aid, to name a few. There have been club members who have gone to the national level and won for their projects in Horse and Photography. Members are active on local, county and state levels. There have also been opportunities in the past to participate in national (Habitat for Humanity build in Toas, NM) and world (four years of the Bosnia-Herzegovina exchange) levels.


Presently, the club is young and small- but mighty. Our nine members are working in a variety of project areas. Our monthly community service project is to make cards/tray favors for approximately 180 Meals on Wheels clients out of the Ocean View and Roxana CHEER centers. The club meets at the Roxana Fire Hall, typically on the second Sunday of the month, from 2-4 PM. For more information, contact the club leader, Kathy DiSabatino, at 302-539-8485.
