Plans For the Weekend?

So, what are your plans for the weekend?  Looking for something to do?  Has cabin fever set in?

Well, back by popular demand is the Clayton County 4H Foundation Casino Night! 

The 4-H Foundation provides financial resources for youth development through 4-H. We provide the financial resources to develop and deliver quality 4-H youth programs throughout Clayton County. These opportunities help young people enhance their ability to use critical thinking, leadership, communication, and social skills – tools that will give them a competitive edge in their future endeavors.

An example of the Foundation's funding is the Clayton County Crops Team.  It takes about $300 to fit the team members with reference books, materials, and equipment just so they can study and learn about the world of agronomy.   Then add contest entrance fees and travel expenses for eight 4Hers and a couple of coaches and this becomes an expensive endevor.  But, how better can a young person learn about the exciting field of plant science and get hands on experience?

After the floods of 2008, the City of Garber built an amazing Community Center.  This Saturday evening, March 2nd, Garber is hosting a delicious pork loin meal with all the trimmings from 7 to 8 pm and then a fun evening of gaming and fellowship all to support the 4H Foundation and youth of Clayton County, at the Community Center. 

Clayton County Iowa has a rich 4H history.  If you were ever in 4H, have family in 4H, or just want something to do Saturday evening come on over to Garber, Iowa, and support Clayton County 4H!
