National 4-H Notes Maine Project Success

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

The National 4-H Council has posted a report on its “Join the Revolution of Responsibility” website about a $4,000 grant from the University of Maine Cooperative Extension 4-H Engaging Youth, Serving Communities program that helped a fundraising effort by students at Sebasticook Valley Middle and Nokomis Regional High schools in Newport to raise $6,000 to build an off-road walkway between the two schools.
