2017 SANBORN COUNTY 4-H RECOGNITION EVENT

 We thank our 2016-17 sponsors - see list here: 2016-2017 Sponsors

                                

The businesses and individuals provided donations and grants this past year totaling $13975.   It is with great appreciation that we recognize these people, as without their support of the 4-H program we would not be able to host quality 4-H programs and we would not be able to have our table full of awards to give to the deserving youth at this ceremony.  When you see these people or patronize their businesses please take the time to thank them for supporting the Sanborn County 4-H Program.
