IMPERIAL – The Imperial County 4-H community held their annual fund-raiser tri-tip barbecue at the IV Expo inside the Sperber Auction Arena Sunday.
New and veteran 4-Hâ€™ers joined worked hard for their local club. Members from each club assisted in distributing the food to ticket holders.
â€œI came out today to help with the 4H community and show my support for the kids,â€ said Maria Ortega, an El Centro resident, about the barbecue.
The 4-H All-Stars held a fund-raising bake sale at the event. An abundant amount of donated pastries filled the bake sale tables.
Membersâ€™ of the all the local 4-H clubs could participate in a poster contest of their own design. Posters were on display on the south side of the event on an easel or a table for visitors to observe. In the poster contest a member could choose to ether design a poster representing 4-H or about something they learned in 4-H or a personal interest relating to 4-H. Prize ribbons were clipped to each poster with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for those that placed in the poster design.
â€œThis is so nice today, I learned how to sew in 4-H when I was a child, and with that, I made my own wedding dress,â€ said Chanda Kuhn about her experience in 4-H.
The Imperial County Humane Society and the El Centro Tractor Supply had a booth set up to represent their support for the local 4-H community. The Humane society was selling shirts to the public to help with fund-raising for the Humane Society and 4H.
