Our club would like to thank the many businesses and individuals who contributed to the purchase of our steers. Our club would also like to thank the many sponsors from both our Achievement Day and the Regional Show and Sale. Without the support from our sponsors, leaders and 4-H parents, our 4-H year would not be possible.
