It may seem too early to be thinking of holiday wreaths, but that time is quickly approaching, but the Sussex County 4-H Foundation Annual Wreath Sale is currently underway. The sale of these wreaths benefit Sussex County 4-Hers though the following ways.
4-H Foundation Scholarship
Last year the Foundation awarded 19 scholarships. The cost for these exceeded profits from the wreath sale. In order to continue the current level of funding for scholarships ($500), clubs need to participate in the sale.
Participation in National 4-H Events
A number of our 4-H members have qualified to participate or compete in national 4-H events. Funding from the Foundation helps members offset some participation costs.
Additionally, those clubs that sell wreaths receive $1 for each 12” wreath (decorated or un-decorated) and $5 for each 36” wreath sold.
If you are interested in purchasing a wreath you can though a 4-H club you know or the 4-H office (973) 948-3040.
Many thanks to you and 4-H club members participating in this year’s wreath sale to helping to raise funds to support the growth and education of our members!
Friday, November 17 will be the last day wreath order forms will be accepted at the 4-H Office.
