STRIPES PAPER CLOVER PROGRAM
Some of you may be aware of the paper clover campaign that Tractor Supply does every year as a fundraiser for the 4-H. Stripes also has a similar campaign and now that there is a Stripes store in Karnes County, this will serve as a fundraiser for 4-H as well. Stripes has asked that during the promotion period, Sept. 2-15 4-H have a presence in the store with involved youth. This is an opportunity for 4-H to work together as a county and not just as clubs. 4-H will be in contact with members as they develop more details and set dates/times to visit Stripes during the campaign.
