Thank you to the kids who suffered through the cold on Saturday at King Soopers: Marley, Nate, Emmalin, Liam, and Josh. This group managed to sell their 25 designated tickets, plus they sold a total of 375 tickets and collected $98 in cash donations!
The Sunday group of Justin, Wyatt, Alexis, Ava, Elsie, and Walter sold 300 tickets and collected $82 in donations before they ran out of tickets to sell!
The total for the weekend was 675 tickets and $180 in cash donations.
Cindy picked up 500 more tickets, so let her know if you’ve sold yours and want more.
One note about turning in tickets: Please remember to put them in numerical order, smallest number on top. If you bring them to the February club meeting, put them in an envelope with your name on it or wrap a piece of paper around them with your name to identify your tickets and funds. There will be many members returning tickets at once.
Thank you for working hard to support 4-H!
Reminder: Sign up to sell carnival tickets at King Soopers on Eagle Drive this Saturday and Sunday. We have two-hour shifts from 10:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. Visit the Signups page and use the SignUpGenius to grab a time slot.
We only have 6 members signed up right now! There is no one signed up for Sunday. This is a great opportunity to sell your 25 tickets!
There is also a $100 prize for the member who sells the most in the county! Last year we had the top seller and the 5th top seller.
If you are a returning member and have not received your carnival, tickets please pick them up from Cindy.
A big thank you to Black Garlic Spice Co. for hosting our Foods project group for a field trip on Monday, January 21. We learned a lot!
