4-H Endowment is THANKFUL for YOUR Support

This past year the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment board has been extremely busy. First, our annual fund raising effort was held in mid-June at the Miller Farm Shop near Pleasantville. With nearly 300 individuals in attendance, we were able to raise over $20,000 for the 4-H Endowment funds. Those funds will ultimately help to sponsor trips, educational events and purchase program supplies for youth currently enrolled in the Fairfield County 4-H program.

Fast forward to Sunday, October 7, 2018 and the 4-H Endowment board gathered again to help kick off the Fairfield County Fair with a pancake flippin’ good time awareness Breakfast.

“Fun learning, friends and instilling good citizenship principles are top of mind when I recall my days in 4-H”

We’re proud to welcome Fairfield County’s own Adam Sharp to the 2018 Legacy Dinner & Auction. During the evening Adam will share insight into what it’s meant to him to have grown up participating as a local 4-H member. He’ll expand on what it means when he says, “We learn through 4-H how groups can properly organize, operate and are governed, we elect our leaders, we learn to compete respectfully and how to volunteer and help others.  All of these skills are needed now more than ever in society and 4-H provides them.”

As executive vice president, Sharp serves as the chief executive of the statewide organization and leads efforts to advance its mission of working together for Ohio farmers to advance agriculture and strengthen our communities.
