Hoofbeat's 4-H Club Community Service
Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth." This
quote, spoken by Muhammed Ali, flawlessly explains the Hoofbeat 4-H Club’s
dedication and service to both their community and outside organizations.
They do not do it for the recognition, nor do they do it to be praised, they
do it because they know that it is the right thing to do. They do it
because the gratification of helping others goes beyond all happiness that

“The creation of a
thousand forests is in one acorn.” Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote this quote in the
past in order to clarify the true meaning of leadership. In only several words
he is able to explain how only one or a few people are needed to inspire the
world to do something that they had once seen before as out of their reach or

person can bring to the world today.
For many years the
Hoofbeats 4-H Club of Goffstown, New Hampshire has been a leader in not only
Hillsborough County but also in the New England Region. Throughout the years
theses dedicated members have volunteered many hours of their time to the
communities around them. They strive for excellence because they believe that
with work, it is possible for the world to become a better place. It is
because of this that they have taken on many roles of leadership. When meeting
with members of the club, one may find that that are engulfed with pride, joy,
excitement, and numerous other qualities. These qualities are due to knowing
that they are making a difference in the lives of others. They realize that
the work they do may seem small in comparison to others but they continue on
in hopes that others will follow in their footsteps. In this way the members
of the Hoofbeats 4-H Club are true leader of the future. They are the acorns
that will grow into the forests of tomorrow.
