MIAMI, Okla. — The Miami community comes together to support local kids in Ottawa County 4-H.
On Saturday, a chili feed, silent auction, and paddle party were held to raise money in support of the organization.
4-H team leaders took in donations from people in the county to help put on the event.
Through money taken in on Saturday, it will help kids create various 4-H projects.
This ranges from kids going to camp, gardening, building electronics, and much more.
Mary Martin, Program Assistant OSU Exention Office, says, “It was really great. I’ll be honest, I was nervous about how many people we would have on a Saturday before Thanksgiving. I’m really happy with the way things turned out and how many people donated and helped support our 4-H kids.”
At least $1000 was raised for Ottawa County 4-H on Saturday.
Martin adds, with so much interest, the organization wants to make it an annual event.
