The Roundup -

Richland County 4-H Raising Money for New Fair Booth


Richland County 4-H clubs are holding fundraisers to earn money to build a new food booth at the Richland County Fairgrounds. The fundraising efforts are already underway and they include selling brand boards, memorial plaques and various other fundraising events conducted by the 4-H clubs in the area.

The brand board fundraiser consists of a square foot (12 inch by 12 inch) board on which area ranchers can place their personal brand. Each brand costs $50 and will be displayed at the 4-H food booth.

The memorial plaques are sheets of stainless steel metal with engraved names and faces of a former 4-H member or leader that someone wishes to honor. The cost of each plaque is $300 and they will be displayed on a commemorative wall at the booth as well.

Richland County 4-H club leaders ask everyone to submit their information for the plaques and the brand boards as soon as possible so they can be ready to be displayed at this year’s fair taking place July 31 – August 3.

Additional funds for the new fair booth will be raised by various fundraisers conducted by area 4-H clubs. For example the Forever Buds worked the concessions at the Neal Hermanson Memorial Ranch Rodeo which took place June 22.

Many of our leaders and companies that support 4-H are donating money, materials and man power to the construction of the new booth. “It’s been a real community effort and we appreciate all the help we are getting.” stated 4-H leader Lisa Gorder.

The new 4-H fair booth will be updated with a new food prep area, ordering window and seating area. “The layout is designed to fit with the other food booths at the fair,” stated Gorder. Construction of the new booth will be completed before this year’s Richland County Fair.

For more information, or to take part in the fundraisers mentioned above, contact Lisa Gorder at 406-482-9672 or Josie Evenson at the MSU Extension office at 406-433-1206.
