February 2021 Spotlight: Heritage 4-H Club

February 18, 2021 Written by Heather Coverdale

Heather Coverdale has a passion for 4-H and has a long history as a 4-H member, leader and employee of the Kent County 4-H Afterschool Program. With extra free time during quarantine, she started to envision activities, tours, projects and community service for a new club. Out of a challenging time, the Heritage 4-H Club was born! 

The club is up and running and members are excited!

Currently, members range in age from 8 to 19 years old. The club meets on the first Monday of the month from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Coverdale’s home. At this time, the projects include foods and nutrition, science, archery, horticulture/gardening and fishing. A few of the members have an interest in goats and swine!

Currently, the members are preparing and practicing speeches for the public speaking contest and choosing a recipe for the Favorite Foods Contest. The next community service project will be making Valentine’s Day favors/cards for a local nursing home. Heritage 4-H members are very excited and eager to explore the many things 4-H has to offer!


To join us on our adventures, contact Heather Coverdale via email or phone at 302-343-9335.
