4-H project benefits small town
When Doyline High School student Courtney Machen was admiring Minden’s Christmas lights one night, she wondered why Doyline wasn’t decorated too. Thus was born her 4-H service-learning project, “Decorate Doyline.”
“I decided on this project one night when I was driving through Minden, looking at the lights,” Machen said.
Machen and other Doyline High School 4-H students raised money and on Dec. 3, 2011 they brought Machen’s idea to life. She hopes the decorations won’t end this year.
