At the end of February, approximately 100 participants took part in Kewaunee County 4-H Project Day. During this fun filled day of hands-on learning, youth (both 4-H and non 4-H members) participate in up to four project classes. Youth could choose from the eighteen available classes based on their interests. Older 4-H youth members and adult volunteers conducted classes on topics ranging from wildlife and forestry activities to wacky science and rabbit hopping. This low cost program provides a safe, fun, and interactive day of activities where both the older youth presenters and youth participants build new life skills. One goals of the day for the 4-H Leaders Association is to keep the event low cost and accessible to all kids. For example, the low price includes all four classes for the day and lunch. The Leaders Association covers the remainder of the supply and meal cost that is not covered by registration fees. However, that would not be possible without the fundraisers that the Leaders Association conducts throughout the year.
One of fundraisers that supports programs like 4-H Project Day is the Time and Talent fundraiser happening this Sunday, March 26th from 10:30am -2:00pm at the Luxemburg Sportsmans Club at Highway 54 in Luxemburg.
This is one of the main Kewaunee County 4-H Leaders Association fundraisers and supports the great activities and programs 4-H provides for Kewaunee County youth. This fundraiser helps support Kewaunee County 4-H activities such as Project Day, project and club support, county fair, camps, animal judging teams, leadership conferences, national trips, 4-H literature purchases, scholarships, and many other opportunities. We make these experiences available to all youth in the program regardless of financial situation. The majority of programs and activities are made possible through fundraising efforts like this one.
