4-H Cookie Time!...

This evening the doorbell rang and there were two young boys selling 4-H cookies and candy bars. The proceeds from this goes to fund award trips to the state capitol, state fair and "Club Congress" at Cornell University. As these boys are my grandsons I immediately chose several packages to buy!


If you aren't familiar with 4-H, here is the website,... http://www.4-h.org/ and the wikipedia page,... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/4-H . My grandchildren are third generation 4-H club members. A great-grandmother, a great-grandfather and a grandmother were 4-H club leaders. I guess 4-H is a family thing!

My DD JUST joined 4H! I always wanted to be in 4H as a kid, I'll be enjoying it vicariously through DD. :-). I didn't know they sold cookies and candy and stuff! It's a wonderful organization, that's so great that you could support your grandsons. Enjoy the goodies! :-)

I didn't even know that 4H did cookie sales! That's awesome. I'm down here in no-4H-land, but I'll have to be sure to look out for it next year. Maybe I can leave my name with some of my up-North neighbors or something.
