To support our many club activities we need the help of our members to raise the funds to cover the club expenses. The club raises the money through fundraiser and sponsorships. This year the club will offer detergent, geraniums, and pork patty sales opportunities, and club t-shirts sales.

The Club says,  thank you for the excellent participation in the detergent, and geraniums fundraiser! The detergent sales set a new club record. Keep up the good work, as rap up with pork patty sales starting at next club meeting.

Join Our Club!

The purpose of a 4-H club is to provide positive youth development experiences to meet the needs of young people through opportunities tied to the Land Grant University knowledge base.  Club meetings are led by youth members who hold leadership positions and are supported by one or more adult volunteers. Club meetings typically take place once a month on the 2nd Monday beginning in January through August. Check the calendar for details. The club host several spring and fall horse youth shows for learning, fun, and as a fundraiser to support club activities and awards. During fair week our members can select from a wide range of classes to exhibit what they have learned. Additional club activities may include horse camp for 1 & 2nd year members, horse bowl, horse judging, trail rides, fun shows, learning activities, junior leaders, community service projects, and fund raising.
