Mother’s Day car wash

The Collins Clippers 4-H club held its annual car wash Saturday at 9 a.m. Dave Struthers trained the young team on the most effective means of car washing, and they began at 9 a.m. with their first vehicle. Undeterred by the intermittent spitting rain, the eager group washed 15 cars spotless and were rewarded with a generous donation of $225.
