Hootenannies "give back" to Ag Credit

The Hardin Co Hootenannies 4-H Club wanted a way to "give back" to Ag Credit in Kenton for allowing them to use their meeting room for their first meetings of the year. 

Ranae Sherman, Branch Manager, informed the group that Ag Credit was wanting to redo their landscaping around the building.  So the club decided to help by getting a tree and planting it for them in their new landscape. 

A Baby Blue Blue Spruce was chosen and the club members dug the hole and set the tree on the west corner of the building.  They wish to say thank you with a gift that will hopefully grow for many years to come.
