A pair of Lakeland 4-H Clubs have gotten a boost from Farm Credit Canada. The Boscombe 4-H Club out of St. Paul and the Elk Point 4-H Beef Club have been given up to $500 to help with projects like achievement days, horse clinics, field trips, public speaking workshops, and buying equipment.
“Projects offered through 4-H Canada are aimed at developing the leadership, confidence and values young people will need to be successful in this vibrant and growing industry, as well as life outside of agriculture,” says Todd Klink, executive vice-president and chief marketing officer at FCC. “Of course, it’s no secret we want the next generation to consider a career in agriculture and the agri-food sector, so we are proud to support 4-H programs that strengthen the bond between this industry and young people across Canada.”
In total, $107,000 is going to clubs across Canada. Applications for the next round will again be accepted this fall.
