STRIPES PAPER CLOVER CAMPAIGN

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 we have a stripes store in Karnes County, this will serve as a fundraiser for us as well.  Stripes has asked that during the promotion period, Sept. 2-15, we have a presence in the store with involved youth.  This is an opportunity for us to work together as a county and not just as clubs.  I will be in contact with you as we develop more details and set dates/times to visit stripes during the campaign. Subscribe to our monthly Family and Consumer Sciences email newsletter by visiting our webpage and following the prompts. http://karnes.agrilife.org
