04/29/2017 - Help 4-H Build a Mile of Fence

April 29 is the National 4-H Day of Service. On this day, 4-H’ers as well as volunteers will be working within their communities to meet the needs of those around them. This year, the Panhandle 4-H District, along with Keith/Arthur counties has teamed up with Bomgaars to help restore part of the fencing that was lost during the fire near Ash Hollow.

On March 16, a wildfire started near Lewellen burning approximately 4600 acres or 7 square miles of grassland as well as many miles of fencing. Although there were no livestock or structure losses, at least five families in the area lost a significant amount of pastureland through this tragedy.

On Saturday, April 29, from 9 am to noon, 4-H members will be located at Bomgaars stores across the region to receive Donations for Doughnuts. Bomgaars has graciously agreed to provide the doughnuts as well as matching funds up to $3,000. All of the proceeds will go to the families to help them restore the fencing that was lost in the fire. Depending on the materials used, a mile of fence costs approximately $10,000 to build.

If you are unable to attend the National 4-H Day of Service but would still like to donate, please send your check to:
