SOUTH DAKOTA Farm Bureau representatives present 4-H Advisor Audra Scheel with a check to help improve the 4-H fairgrounds.

Sanborn County 4-H Members celebrated improvements made at their fairgrounds on Monday, June 26, at noon during the Sanborn County 4-H Horse Show at the fairgrounds in Forestburg. A newly built crow’s nest is the featured improvement, which is among the list of statewide projects funded through the South Dakota Farm Bureau Centennial Community Initiative.
“As our 4-H membership grows, so does our need for safer and more functional facilities in Forestburg,” said Audra Scheel, SDSU Extension 4-H Youth Program Advisor. “A crow’s nest has been a need for some time. This will definitely make an impact for our current members, but also for the future of our program. We are really excited to have this great addition to the 4-H facility in Sanborn County.”
Funding for the crow’s nest was made possible by a $2,500 donation from the South Dakota Farm Bureau combined with a $1,000 donation from the Aurora/Jerauld/Sanborn County Farm Bureau. The Sanborn County Fairground project is one of the first of several SDFB Centennial Community Initiative projects that will be announced in the coming weeks.
