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.
