We want to hear your story!
JOANN and 4-H are again teaming up to collect donations at the register and offer special discounts for JOANN/4-H Rewards Card members. The kick-off to the promotion starts today, March 1! The activation helps the effort to bring 4-H to more kids nationwide.
Visit any JOANN store between March 1 and April 30, 2020 to participate or donate online at https://4-h.org/4HJOANN.
On April 18, JOANN will host a free, take home craft event in all stores. Kits will include LEGO DOTs and kids can create a bunny and chick and coloring pages. Each craft bag will include about donating to 4-H and creating opportunity for all.

GREAT NEWS AFFECTING EVERY 4-H MEMBER – FROM THE ORTHODONTIC OFFICE OF DR. BELLI AND DR. STREIT
We wish to thank the many 4-H members who invited us to attend the 2016 Portage County Randolph Fair Livestock Auction. For over ten years, it has been and continues to be our passion at Belli Streit Orthodontics to show support of 4-H by purchasing animals from several members. In the past, this expression of support, though very important, has benefited only a few.
This year we have chosen instead to make a monetary donation to the Portage County Extension Office that will be of benefit to each of the 850 members in all branches of 4-H. We believe this is the best choice in expression of our heartfelt support of the goal of 4-H, which is to “develop citizenship, leadership, and responsibility in all individuals who participate.”
We are currently working with Ashley Hughey, Portage County 4-H Extension Educator, to decide the exact designation that will make the greatest impact for everyone. A public announcement will be made from Mrs. Hughey when the contribution is finalized.
In light of our sincere interest in your accomplishments and our wish to share it with the community, we encourage you to post pictures and descriptions of your projects on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/belliOrthodontics. In doing so, you will help us all to realize the diversity and talent that exists in all branches of 4-H.
Congratulations on the completion of your chosen projects for this year. Our team at Belli Streit Orthodontics looks forward to seeing you at the fair.
