Thank you everyone that donated toys to help with the Marietta Community Foundation’s toy drive to benefit the Washington County Angel Tree Program. Washington County 4-H won $5000 and these funds will be deposited into the 4-H Fund at the Marietta Community Foundation!
Here is a clip from the 11/19/20 Marietta Times article:
The Nonprofit Challenge this year was a toy drive. Participating nonprofits collected new toys between Nov. 2 and Tuesday and delivered them to the foundation at 100 Putnam St. in Marietta.
The foundation raised more than $10,000 in toys that will be distributed as Christmas gifts, Allender said. All the toys will be donated to The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, she said.
“They have expanded to their program to serve 1,000 children this year and the toys we collect during our event will help them significantly,” she said.
Washington County 4-H surged to second place with an 11th-hour toy delivery on Tuesday, Allender said.
Have you had a great 4-H experience this year, or maybe you were able to put some money in to your college fund after the livestock sales. Now is a great time to say thank you to our local businesses, volunteers, and project helpers. A great way to say thanks is to write a quick thank you note and drop it in the mail or even stop by the business personally to offer a thank you. Saying Thank you is easy and lets other’s know you appreciate their support. Who will you thank this year??
Clubs wanting to participate in the Washington County Fair trash can painting contest should register with their contest entry form. Trash cans should include your group’s name and the year 2020. Trash cans will be judged on creativity, neatness, and overall appearance. This contest is open to all 4-H Clubs, FFA and FCCLA Chapters, and Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops. Organizations should go to Washington County Fair Grounds and pick up a trash can located under the old sheep barn next to the multi purpose building. Trash cans and entry forms are due to the junior fair building on Thursday September 3, 2020.
If you were unable to attend the live 4-H Club Officer Trainings, here are links to each of the recordings. Special thanks to each of our presenters (4-H Alumni and Members) that made these presentations possible!

Thank you for everyone in Washington County who support our 4-H program through the TSC Paper Clover campaign. At this time the Spring campaign has been postponed. Below is the message from National 4-H Council…
As we continue to work through these unique circumstances associated with COVID-19 and focus on the needs of 4-H youth, Extension staff, Volunteers, and communities, the 2020 Spring 4-H Paper Clover campaign with Tractor Supply Company (originally scheduled to take place 4/29 – 5/10) will be postponed to a later date.
We also want to confirm that our partnership with Tractor Supply will continue with the Fall Paper Clover campaign as planned for 10/7 – 10/18.
