Recognition Night Results

We had a great turnout for the Recognition Night last night.  The 4-H Boosters provided a wonderful meal and 168 people were in attendance.  Leaders Council also did well on their Silent Auction.

Area youth who filled out an Awards Form this past spring, were given their awards, plaques and trips.  State 4-H event participants were also recognized.  4-H Leaders were given certificates and pins and recognized for their many years of volunteering in the Branch County 4-H program.

Shelter House Project

The MSU Extension Office has been contacted by the Shelter House that they are in need of paper products.  We are asking that Branch County 4-H clubs consider donating some products for this need.  Clubs can get their donations into our office by November 15th and we will make arrangements for the donations to be delivered directly to the Shelter House.  What a great community service project to do for our county!
