Our 4H group helped out some folks in the community who were unable to rake their own yards. We finished 4 yards in about 3 hours with many helpers. Towards the end of the last (and largest) yard, the kids were enjoying the piles immensely, but I think I was the only adult to jump in. They don't know what they're missing... We also were able to get the neighborhood newsletter delivered, along with about half of C's Girl-scout cookie orders. Fun and productive is a good combination.
