The Faulkner County 4-H will host a Poor Boy Supper to raise funds to help support the group.
The supper will begin at 6 p.m. Oct. 22 in St. Joseph’s Spiritain Center.
Tickets are $15 a plate or $40 for a family. Proceeds benefit the local youth 4-H.
“The 4-H Youth program uses a learn-by-doing approach to enable youth to develop the knowledge, attitudes and skills needed to become competent, caring and contributing citizens of the world. This mission is accomplished by using the knowledge and resources of the land-grant university system, along with the involvement of caring adults,” 4-H officials said in news release.
During the dinner, the group will draw the winning ticket for a John Deere Gator. Raffle tickets are currently on sale and cost $40 each or three for $100. Ticketholders don’t have to be present at the dinner to win. All raffle ticket proceeds benefit the Faulkner County 4-H.
Kami Green, the 4-H representative for the Faulkner County branch of the Arkansas Cooperative Extension Office, said she encourages young people to get involved with the group.
“Find a [Faulkner County 4-H] club for you … there are 24 to choose from,” Green said. “Participation in 4-H is free.”
The organization is also seeking 4-H alumni to get involved.
“Faulkner County 4-H would love for [alumni] to be involved,” Green said. “Be a judge; volunteer; make a difference.”
