(QUEEN’S PARK) – Leeds-Grenville MPP Steve Clark was proud today to join members of the Ontario PC Caucus in wearing green at the Ontario Legislative Assembly to show his support for 4H Canada ’s 100th anniversary.
“I know how hard 4H volunteers here in Leeds-Grenville work to cultivate programs that give young people the skills they need to be successful in life – whether they pursue a career in agriculture or any other field,” said Clark. “4H has done so much over the past century to promote the values of rural communities and I’m proud in their centenary year to show my strong support for everyone involved.”
Clark (circled in photograph) noted he recently joined many from the riding’s 4H community to celebrate longtime Leeds County 4H leader Brenda Dunster receiving the prestigious Arbor Award from 4H Ontario .
“We’re so fortunate to have 4H and leaders like Brenda in our community,” stressed Clark . “I want to thank every 4H volunteer and participant from Leeds and Grenville Counties for their efforts and wish the entire organization a Happy 100th Anniversary and all the best for their next century.”
November 6 is the annual Wear Green for 4H Day, which raises support and awareness about the organization and how its ‘Learn By Doing’ motto is inspiring youth to become the leaders of our community in the future.
