It has come to my attention that buyers from the 4-H Livestock Sale at county fair have not received a thank you from several 4-H Livestock Sale participants.
If Cherry County 4-Hers hope to continue to have buyers attend, purchase animals and have community support for this event, it is imperative that each and every 4-Her thank the buyers of their animals.
Thank you notes should have been written in August. This on-going lack of attention puts all of 4-H in a bad light, not just the individuals who appear to be ungrateful. If you have not thanked your buyer, get this taken care of immediately.
In the next few weeks the 4-H Council will be calling on some of the same businesses and individuals that support the livestock sale to also donate for our only 4-H fundraiser, Luck of the Draw. I sincerely hope that the negligence of a few does not affect the whole 4-H program in a potentially detrimental manner.
Hopefully the lack of gratitude by some members can still be remedied with prompt action and prevent 4-H from losing community support.
