BANGOR, DOVER-FOXCROFT and MILLINOCKET, Maine — Area 4-Hers will participate in this fall’s Tractor Supply 4-H Paper Clover Promo. Here’s an opportunity for members of the community to meet 4-H members and learn more about this great youth program. Customers will have a chance to purchase 4-H Paper Clovers to support this very worthwhile organization. All monies received from the Clover Sales goes to 4-H programming at the national, state and county levels with the counties receiving the largest percentage.
“Our youth attend camps and university campus programs because of generous public support of TSC Campaign,” said Barbara Baker, Extension Educator, in a press release.
The fall 2013 4-H Paper Clover Campaign will take place Oct. 9-20. Shoppers at the Bangor, Dover-Foxcroft, and Millinocket Tractor Supply stores will have the opportunity to support 4-H in Penobscot and Piscataquis counties by choosing to purchase paper clovers for a $1 or more at checkout. All funds raised will be donated to 4-H, and will support 4-H youth development program activities in Piscataquis and Penobscot counties.
