Praise for popcorn purchases
- South County Spotlight - Opinion
The Sande Shore 4-H Horse Club would like to thank everyone who purchased popcorn from our fundraising project.
As our first-ever fundraising effort we considered it to have been a great success. These funds allowed the youth to go horse camping with their families and attend the 4-H summer camp.
This project was a great way to teach our 4-H members the process of communicating about a product, asking the individual to purchase, record-keeping and then the follow-up of delivery and confirmation.
Club members are in the process of following up with customers to find out what they thought of the product and how we might improve if we choose to conduct this type of fundraising again.
As leaders and parents of the club, we understand that the youth are in the 4-H program because of their love and desire to be around horses, but it's the life skills that these types of projects teach. These skills are ones our members will use throughout their lives, whether or not horses are a part of their adult life.
Thank you everyone who helped us teach, coach and lead the great youth in our community.
They couldn't have done it without you.
