GREENFIELD — 4-H teaches the skill of recordkeeping. Many 4-H alumni credit their experiences keeping a 4-H record book with helping them maintain records as an adult, whether it is to file their income taxes or run a business.
The Youth Action Committee of Adair County encourages recordkeeping by offering a $10 incentive to every 4-H’er who completes a record book in addition to providing recognition for outstanding project work based on their records.
Individuals and businesses may support this effort by becoming a Friend of 4-H Record Keeper. A cash contribution to the 4-H booster fund for at least $10 helps ensure all 4-H’ers completing a 4-H record book will receive a cash incentive, and those who do superior project work will be recognized with special awards. Gifts to the 4-H booster fund are tax deductible.
To become a Friend of 4-H Record Keeper for the Adair County 4-H program, contact Donna Wallace at Adair County Extension at 641-743-8412 or 1-800-ISUE 399.
