Stonewall County 4-Hers Bake Sale & Raffle was a success!

Stonewall County 4-Her’s showed off their baking skills as they held a bake sale on Saturday, April 13th. Due to inclement weather preventing an outdoor sale, the kids were able to join the Stonewall County Senior Citizens in their building as they participated in the City-Wide Garage Sale. In addition to the Bake Sale, the winner of our month-long raffle sales was announced.

Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels, Texas donated 4 one day pass tickets to Stonewall County 4-H to use as a fund raiser to help raise money for summer camp. 4-H added $ 200.00 in gifts cards and raffled them as a mini getaway package. Congratulations to Stacy Senn as her name was drawn as the winner of our raffle and thank you to everyone who purchased tickets.
