Madison Township 4-H Awards Banquet and Silent Auctionby Jessica Grabowski on September 17, 2014
Another year at the St. Joseph County 4-H Fair has come to a close. The Fairgrounds are empty and quiet as friends and family of 4-H'ers admire their projects, ribbons and trophies. Not all the townships are finished celebrating. The Madison Township 4-H Club is inviting all the 4-H'ers and their families to their annual Madison Township Banquet and Silent Auction.
The Banquet will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014 at 6:30 p.m. in the Commercial Building of the St. Joseph County 4-H Fairgrounds. The main entree will be furnished by the club, but they are asking each family to bring a covered dish and dessert to share with each other. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m., giving people a chance to look over the silent auction items.
The Silent Auction is the clubs largest fundraiser of the year. It allows the club to offer scholarships to EVERY 10-Year Madison Township 4-H'er. Without this support, the club could not continue to help their 4-H'ers as they leave the club to move on to other endeavors.
Plaques and trophies will be handed out, as well as honoring 4-H Leaders. There will also be a short meeting that will begin around 6:30 p.m.
If you have questions or would like to help the Township Club help their 4-Her's with a donation for the auction, please contact Jeanne Lehman at 633-4611. Members should be receiving a card in the mail, so please RSVP.
