Thinking about “Giving Back” in the New Year

We are just days away from ringing in 2018 and for many of us that typically means a resolution or two.  But, what about making a resolution to “give back” some of your time, talent or resources?  Did you ever think about some of your fondest childhood memories or perhaps memories made together as family?

Thanks for Another Great Legacy Dinner & Auction!

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.

Thanks to the Contributing Sponsors of the 2017 Legacy Dinner & Auction

In 2010 the 4-H Legacy Dinner & Auction was begun in an effort to create a formal annual event where local 4-H 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 have generously donated funding and services that will allow for a comfortable evening on the 22nd celebrating 4-H Youth Development.

Special thanks to this year’s contributing sponsors that include 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.

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.
