Local 4-H chapters putting on spread for breakfast fundraiser

Dunn County 4-H officials are hoping for a similar turnout for the annual 4-H Breakfast and Silent Auction fundraiser on Sunday.

Last year, more than 300 people turned out for the event. And there were about 100 items donated for the silent auction.

The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Killdeer Public School.

The breakfast will include French toast, hash browns, ham, pancakes, scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, milk, juice and coffee.

The cost will be $8 per plate for adults, $6 per plate for students. Children under 5 years of age will eat for free. The family rate will be $30.

There will be an awards ceremony after the breakfast, including 4-Her of the year and Friend of 4-H.

If you would like to donate items, take them to the Dunn County Extension office or you can bring them to the school on the day of the breakfast and silent auction.

The proceeds will go toward local 4-H clubs and projects.

4-H is America’s largest youth development organization, which empowers nearly six million young people across the United States with skills to lead for a lifetime, according to its web site.

Programs are delivered by 3,500 4-H professionals and 500,000 volunteers. Young people experience 4-H through school and community clubs, in-school and after-school programs and 4-H camps.

Based on their interests and guided by adult mentors, youth develop their own pathway in 4-H. They select from a broad menu of local 4-H programs. There are hands-on, learn-by-doing, opportunities to everyone.

In Dunn County, there are 53 youths enrolled in 4-H and 24 youngsters enrolled in the Cloverbuds.

There are five 4-H clubs in Dunn County.

Killdeer has two chapters, Spring Creek and Badlanders.

The other chapters are: Prairie Travelers 4-H Club of Marshall, Wildfire Mustangs 4-H Club of Halliday, and Crooked Knife 4-H Club out of Manning.
