Although we are all aware that the times are not the best, this great community certainly pulled together and made this year's Lapeer County 4-H Auction the best ever with a net profit of about $31,000. More than 400 donors, 300 bidders and friends and about 100 volunteers were able to make the Celebrity and Spring Auctions a priority again this year, and for that we at 4-H are extremely grateful. These funds will be used to sustain the 4-H Youth program in our county where more than 700 young people are in clubs and 3,000 participate in short term programs.
A heartfelt thank you and tribute to the Lapeer County community.
