Everyone Plays a Vital Role in Leaving a 4-H Legacy!

Eight years ago the 4-H Legacy Dinner & Auction was begun in an effort to create a formal annual event where local 4-H alumni and supporters could come together for an evening of fun and fellowship benefiting the Fairfield County 4-H Endowment. To conduct such an event each year, it takes the cooperation and support of many different individuals and businesses. One of those groups of supporters are the contributing sponsors that generously donate funding and services that allow for the comfortable evening everyone enjoys when they come together in celebration of 4-H Youth Development.

This year is no different as several have already committed to contributing sponsorships for 2018. Included among those are Continue reading

While we don’t have all of the final details or numbers just yet, judging from all the smiles, handshakes and kind remarks, the 2017 Legacy Dinner & Auction was a great success.  Over 280 individuals were registered for the event and with all of the helpers and Junior Leaders attending we estimate over 300 individuals were served.

A great meal featured Leg of Lamb – expertly prepared by Kris Doyle and Frank Cox, Pork Tenderloins – cooked to perfection by Doug and Aaron Leith, and some awesome Beef Loins – prepared by Cheryl Majors. Special thanks to Bower and Sons Meats & Sausages for some of the biggest baked potatoes ever, to Maradore Farms for providing the Swiss cheese, and to Ruffwing Farms for sharing their newly created Tuemma (Sheep) Cheese for great additions to the appetizer table.  Not to mention some Continue reading

The Grubes Look Forward to Hosting You at the 2017 Legacy Dinner!

Plan now to enjoy the 2017 Fairfield County 4-H Endowment Dinner on June 22, at the home of Karl and Judith Grube. The Grubes  moved to their farm home at 1225 Canal Rd, Baltimore, in 1962. They’ve raised 3 children – Karyl, Joyce, and Greg – on the farm, and all three were members of Thurston Future Farmers 4-H Club and showed hogs at the fair for each of their 10 years in 4-H. The girls were also members of 4-H sewing clubs and participated in the Jr. Fair Queen program. Greg was named Outstanding 4-H Member in 1986.

The Fairfield County 4-H Youth Development program strives to teach leadership, citizenship and life skills to nearly 1,270 4-H club members each year. While most of these young people participate in the traditional 4-H club experiences, children who are not yet 4-H age can participate in a non-competing, activity based curriculum known as the Cloverbud program. Nearly 1000 additional youth are exposed to 4-H work through school enrichment programs. In addition, the 4-H Youth Development program also offers training and leadership opportunities for more than 200 4-H advisors in our County.
