Payton Terrell, Madi Schupbach, Alexis Schupbach and Corby Taggert of Best of Times 4-H Club in Montesano hold a collage they made to represent acts of kindness they each performed to honor the 26 victims of the Newtown, Conn. shooting in December. Jake Davis also participated but is not pictured. The members exceeded their goal of 26 acts, completing at least 35 each for their month-long project, ranging from opening doors, delivering flowers, sending cards, care packages and adopting a platoon for Valentine’s Day. The collage will be displayed throughout Grays Harbor and Lewis counties.
