DENT — Members of the Dent Helping Hands 4-H Club recently came together to complete a community project.

After a day of woodworking, the 4-H kids and their parents completed handmade benches built for the Dent Community Center, placed by the pickleball court.

Though this was one of the group's easier projects, the kids still really enjoyed the work, said Group Leader Angie Berry.

They chose to place the benches by the pickleball courts so the Dent community would be able to use and enjoy them. This was the first community project Dent 4-H has completed in the past few years.
