Super Special "Thank-You"
After many years of volunteering on the committee, two members are moving on to their next adventure!
Helps us thank...

Rodney Bratthauer for recruiting and securing generous sponsorships over the past few years.

Mike Hofer for leading the efforts to host the annual basketball tournament so many members list as their favorite 4-H memory.

(Neither stands still for a photo so this is the best we have!)
