The Dunn County 4-H Program held its annual Breakfast and Silent Auction Fundraiser and Awards Ceremony on Feb. 10 at the Killdeer Public School Multi-Purpose Room. Over 250 people came and enjoyed a breakfast served up by the 4-H members and families and also enjoyed taking in the silent auction.
A big “Thank You” goes out to everyone who helped support the breakfast, silent auction or donated items for the event. Without the support of the local community, many of the activities that the 4-Hers participate in would not be possible.
Following the Breakfast and Silent Auction, the annual Awards Ceremony was held to recognize members and volunteers for their work from the previous year. Members from the different 4-H clubs gave reports of what activities they did throughout the year as well.
Two “Friend of 4-H” Awards were given at this year’s event and were awarded to Farmers Union Oil Company of Killdeer and Stockmens Livestock Exchange of Dickinson for their continued support of the Dunn County 4-H Program throughout the years.
Megan Dahlen of Halliday was awarded the “4-Her of the Year” award. She has been a 4-H member for seven years in the county. Special recognition was also given to three leaders in Dunn County for their years of service to the Dunn County 4-H Program. Deb Dressler of Richardton was awards a clock for being a 4-H Leader for 30 years. Delvin and Kelley Dukart of Manning both received plaques for being 4-H Leaders for 25 years.
