Pens For Progress! 

Recent severe winter conditions wreaked havoc on our Rich County Junior Livestock facility, resulting in significant damage to the livestock pavilion.  As a result, we had to demolish the building and pens for safety reasons.  This setback has put a strain on the ability to host livestock shows, educational programs, and community events that benefit our youth and agricultural enthusiasts.  Although we have funds to rebuild the structure, we are still looking for funds for replacement of the pens.  
Rich County 4-H will be hosting a Pens for Progress Donor Breakfast on July 29, 2023 at the Garden City Offices.  Breakfast will be served from 9:00 AM- 11:30 AM.  
Throughout the event, attendees will have various opportunities to contribute to the cause, wether through direct donations or by pledging funds for specific elements of the new livestock pens. 
Donors and sponsors will be acknowledged for their support during the event, emphasizing the crucial role they play in empowering young agriculturists and strengthening the community.
By organzing the "Pens for Progress Donor Breakfast" the Rich County Jr. Livestock Program aims to rally community support and raise funds to ensure the next generation of agricultural leaders has the necessary resources to thrive. 
There is no donation too small to help.  Please come support! 
Thank you!
