    Tolland County 4-H Sponsorship & Ad Campaign

    Tolland County 4-H Ad & Sponsorship Campaign 

    What? In order to raise the money needed, the Tolland County 4-H Fair Book Committee is holding its annual Sponsorship Ad Campaign. The budget for the fair this year is over $30,000. Every individual or business that sponsors the 4-H Fair receives recognition in the Fair Premium Book. If every 4-H member in Tolland County sells at least three ads/sponsorships, our goal will be met!

    Who do I ask? EVERYBODY! Family, friends, neighbors, 4-H leaders & volunteers, local businesses…

    Turn In: Saturday, April 20, 2024 Or drop them off anytime in the week prior to “Turn In” or by mail to the 4-H office
