Maggie Rennie, Jayden Warren and Ellen Harrell are among Calhoun 4-H youth who, with the help of adult volunteers, have been involved in community service projects such as building dollhouses and making lap quilts. The completed dollhouses and quilts were donated to Toys for Tots, house fire victims and the less fortunate.
