Sussex County 4-H Weekly Newsletter August 18-25, 2023

Thank you to everyone who participated in and volunteered to make this year’s NJSF/SCF&HS a great success.

We would love for all our 4-H clubs to please write Thank You to Visions Federal Credit Union for their ongoing support of Sussex County 4-H at the New Jersey State Fair. In addition, it would amazing for individual 4-H members who received a 2023 fair premium check to take a moment to write a quick personal note of thanks to Visions for their continued support of 4-H and their projects.

Thank you’s can be mailed to
Visions Federal Credit Union
24 McKinley Avenue
Endicott, NY 13760

We hope all our 4-H members had a great fair and a chance to ‘Learn by Doing’ and ‘Make the Best Better’.
