Fruit may now be ordered from any 4-H member in Brown County as part of their annual fundraiser. The fresh fruit choices include five different Washington apples, and D’Anjou pears, Texas Rio Star red grapefruit, California navel oranges, and jet fresh whole Hawaiian pineapple. Also, offered are beef sticks, smokey snack sticks, and string cheese.

The funds that are raised will be used for community service projects, 4-H education programs and awards for project work and to help fund trip and training expenses. The funds will benefit all Brown County 4-H members and reach many others through the community service work 4-H members do.

4-H youth, ages 8 to 19, pledge their heads, hearts, hands, and health to better living. 4-Her’s challenge everyone to eat healthy which includes two to four servings of fruit each day. Contact any 4-H family you know to order your fruit, which will be delivered mid-March. Orders may also be placed by stopping out at the SDSU Extension/Brown County 4-H office (400 24th Ave NW) by March 1.

Eat healthy, order fruit, and support America’s largest out-of-school educational youth program — 4-H.
