Washington County 4-H receives $500 from Afton

The Washington County Fair is still almost six months away, but Washington County 4-H is already planning for the 2012 fair.

Dan Dolan, president of the Washington County Agricultural Society, made a presentation during the Feb. 15 Afton City Council meeting requesting support for Washington County 4-H.

"4H is very dear to my heart," Dolan said.

Currently, Washington County 4-H is working on fundraising, seeking out grants and donations and seeking support for 2012, which is why Dolan came to Afton City Council.

City Council approved a $500 contribution. The money will come from the city's discretionary fund.
