The annual LaRue County 4-H candy sale started this month.
Starting today 4-H members may pick up candy at the LaRue County Extension Office, 807 Old Elizabethtown Road, across from Magnolia Bank. Parents must sign a permission form in order for members to participate.
Members will be selling a variety of candy bars including caramel, crisp, almond, dark chocolate with almonds and milk chocolate for $1 each.
For each 60 candy bars sold, the member's name will go in a drawing for $25. The top seller will receive $50.
All sellers will receive a 4-H prize. The sale extends through Dec. 14. All sellers must return money or unsold candy by the Dec. 14 deadline in order to be eligible for prizes.
Thanks to everyone who supports 4-H by selling or purchasing candy bars. Without the funds raised, so many 4-H opportunities would not be available or would be offered with a fee charged per participants. Funds help with 4-H camp scholarships, sponsorships for 4-H members to attend State 4-H Teen Conference and Teen Summit, and many more activities and events.
4-H enrollment is taking place for 2012-13 and school club meetings are being held for 4th and 5th graders. These students have the opportunity to sign up and participate in 4-H at school. However, 4-H is open to all youth ages 9 to 18.
All current members must complete a new 4-H enrollment form each year in order to remain a member. 4-H Cloverbud activities are also available for 5 to 8 year olds.
Enrollment forms are available at the Extension Office and
