Forestburg — Local electric service provider Central Electric Cooperative has partnered with industry allies to donate $7,000 toward the Sanborn County 4-H building addition. The donation includes $2,500 from Central Electric, $2,500 from CoBank and $2,000 from Basin Electric Power Cooperative. 

The addition will double the size of the existing 6,000-square-foot building located along Highway 34 in Forestburg. Project blueprints call for mostly open space to better accommodate youth activities, exhibits, shooting sports and large community events. The plans also include a family handicap-accessible restroom and off-kitchen storage room.

Sanborn County 4-H was delighted to hear that they had been chosen to receive a CHS Seeds for Stewardship grant for their “Raise the Roof” fundraising for the 4-H Building addition project. The CHS Grant program supports requests that strengthen and uplift hometown communities. Priority is given to requests that align with ag safety and farmer well-being, agriculture education and rural community vitality. 

Plans are underway to double the size of the current 60’ x 100’ 4-H Building with construction planned in 2023. Fundraising for the project continues with $320,000 of the total goal of $350,000 raised. For all information on the project, see the website http://www.sanborncounty4h.com/4-h-building-addition-project.html.

Fundraising for the Sanborn County “Raise the Roof” 4-H Building Addition has had great success towards their goal of $350,000, with the total raised at over $317,000! The latest effort is the “Shoot the 4 of Clubs” fundraising activity.  Each week tickets are sold for a Monday night drawing. The drawing is shared via Facebook live and you do not have to be present to win as the 4-H building committee will call the winner. The lucky winner of the drawing then picks a sealed and numbered envelope from a group of 54, each containing a card from a deck of cards.  The goal of the drawing winner is to pick the envelope containing the 4 of Clubs which means they win 50 percent of the Shoot the 4 of Clubs “cumulative pot.” If they do not pick the envelope with the four of clubs, the lucky winner still receives 10 percent of the weekly ticket sales which has been $500+ that equals $50+ in winnings.  The remainder of the ticket sales goes towards the cumulative pot.  The tickets from the weekly sales are then discarded and sales for the next week begins.  The minimum payout to the four of clubs winner is $500.
