PRINCETON — The Dover-Berlin 4-H Club received a $250 grant from the Community Improvement Grant Program funded by 1st Farm Credit Services.
The Dover-Berlin 4-H Club is using the grant to build a new 4-H sign at the Bureau County Fairgrounds.
The grant program funded 28 community improvement projects completed by 4-H clubs and FFA chapters. Overall, the grants helped more than 1,140 volunteers work more than 5,100 hours in their communities.
The 1st Farm Credit Services developed the program as a way to help rural youth give back and enhance their communities. The projects selected to receive the grants had to bring a positive change and impact on the local community, involve youth development and education and show a community need.
The club will work to create a design and build a new sign for the Bureau County Fairgrounds. Members will replace the old sign and hope to live the club’s motto of “To make the best better.” By working with the fair board, the club will spend more than 12 hours on the project.
