Help the NE WA Fair Dinner and Auction

This annual dinner to benefit the NE WA fair is set for Saturday, May 11. We are asking 4-H’ers to support this fundraiser by providing desserts for the dinner. We are also asking clubs to donate a themed basket to support the silent auction if they can. Desserts and auction items can be brought to the dinner that night or dropped off at the Ag Trade Building that day. Doors open at 5 pm with dinner served at 6 pm. Dinner includes tri tip, turkey, baked beans, coleslaw, baked potato, rolls, and dessert. Proceeds benefit the NE WA Fair. Thank you for your support of this event!
