MaxYield Cooperative presented Dickinson Country Extension and Outreach with a contribution that will help Dickinson County 4-H members decrease the cost of enrollment in the 4-H youth program.

“We are continuing our support of local 4-H clubs and our commitment to 4-H,” said Chad Meyer, MaxYield Client Relations Director. “Recently, we presented a contribution for $10.00 per member in order to decrease the cost of 4-H membership.”

Meyer said the cooperative has two goals in providing the program. “First, we want to make 4-H an affordable youth program for local families. Secondly, by paying a portion of each member’s enrollment fee, we are able to continue our mission in supporting 4-H so that each member benefits.”

Dickinson county currently has 487 youth enrolled in 4-H in grades 4-12. “Through 4-H, youth are able to gain citizenship, leadership, communication, and project life skills with their involvement in the program,” said Karen Byers, Dickinson County Extension Director.

The cooperative contributed $4,870 to Dickinson County Extension.
