We were given a great opportunity by Mr. Turner to partner with this fall's 4-H Clover Sales at Tractor Supply. Some of you may have helped with this before, but this year we have an even better reason to help. The Clover Sales at Tractor Supply is given to our local 4-H. It is a great fundraiser and is also a great way to earn some 4-H service hours. Rather than just standing there asking for folks to purchase a clover (a paper clover that hangs in the store) 4-H likes to encourage interaction, whether have some sort of exhibit or activity.
With that said, Mr. Turner offered JMG the opportunity to have some time at Tractor Supply (Sevierville and/or Seymour) to do this, with the option to raise our own money. This is such a great opportunity for many reasons. We can help 4-H earn money, help JMG earn money, make our community aware of JMG (and what we do), and earn your own service hours. If you are a high school student and planning to attend the November 4-H All Star this will also count toward your time to earn money to pay for that.
So we have jumped on this chance given us and going to make the best of it! We need your help in a couple of ways. See all the details below to decided how you can help.
JMG Tent at Tractor Supply. We will be asking shoppers to purchase 4-H clovers to support the organization, have a bake sale with proceeds going to our JMG club, providing a hands on activity for kids visiting with us, set up an exhibit of our JMG club, and giving out FREE seeds to anyone who takes home a baked good.
