Summit County 4-H counts an impressive total

Kathie M. Kralik, Summit County 4-H Director

Congratulations to our Summit County 4-H members for raising $7,200 in cash and checks in the past 6 days. The funds were sent Saturday morning to the LVMA (Louisiana Veterinary Medical Assoc.) to help the animals affected by Hurricane Katrina.Also, on Friday the group took a truck to the Colorado Humane Society filled with enough food and supplies to care for over 300 animals for 2 weeks. Summit County 4-H, the Summit County Animal Shelter, and the Barnyard in Frisco will continue to collect funds for the next 2 weeks. Please no more pet food – the main request is for funds at this time to provide shelter and safety for the animals. On Friday, our 4-H kids raising funds at Safeway collected $819. Major thanks goes out to Summit County 4-H youth, Ashley Longhill, Brenda Reider, and Ally Faulkner. Also, on Friday, at the City Market in Breckenridge, 4-H kids raised $554. Excellent work, Megan Hollenbeck, Molly Herwehe, Adde Sharp, Anne Marie McAllister, Chelsea Andrew and Kelly Burns.I am very proud of our 4-H kids whom really stepped up to the challenge, volunteered their time, to promote and raise funds to help the animals! Our Summit County spirit and compassion is shinning! Please give yourself and your friends a pat on the back.
