Saturday Hot Spring County 4-Hers joined forces by holding a Pancake Breakfast at First Baptist Family Life Center. The breakfast consisted of pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, biscuits, gravy, milk, juice and coffee.
Approximately 550 tickets were sold to area supporters, resulting in a near $3,000 profit for the club. Some local clubs had the opportunity to earn extra funds for their club by selling 50 or more tickets. Each ticket sold in excess of 50 netted the club an additional $2 per ticket.
Funds raised from tickets sales assist students with expenses of camps, 4-H center activities, workshops and a wide variety of other activities for local 4-H students.
All 4-Hers in the area had the opportunity to sale tickets and assist at the breakfast.
"We have several students going to Washington, D.C. this year and we plan to assist them with expenses," said Hot Spring County Agent Jesse Clark. "There's also a hiking trip to Minnesota planned, and 4-H will assist where it can."
Upcoming events for the 4-H include a auction on March 1 at the 4-H Center at 7 p.m.
The annual Trail Ride will be held the first weekend in April and a Dutch Oven cooking demonstration will be held later in the spring.
