Earlier this year, Allen County 4-H Council was fortunate to be the recipient of a $2,500 donation through the Monsanto Fund’s America’s Farmers Grow Communities program.
On behalf of the 4-H program, I want to make farmers in Allen County aware of the program and ask them to tell others about it.
Any farmer can win the opportunity to designate a 4-H group to receive $2,500. Farmers can enter now through Dec. 31. To qualify, the farmer must be at least 21 years old and actively engaged in farming at least 250 acres of corn, soybeans and/or cotton.
Allen County 4-H Council would greatly appreciate receiving another donation because we have tremendous plans to choose projects that will benefit our community. Yet another reason to sign up: the Monsanto Fund will donate $1 per entry to the local United Way.
In any case, we all win. For more information, check out www.growcommunities.com or call 620-365-2242. It only takes a few minutes.
Thank you for your continued support of 4-H.
