4-H Cafe & Concessions

Each 4-H youth is asked to help out in a very important way to help
4-H at the concession booth during fair.  The money earned from the
concessions is a large part of helping youth and volunteers
attend events, fund projects and much more! 

Your couple of hours is so helpful to making 4-H successful.
