The Henrietta Kiwanis Club will team with the Clay County Junior Livestock Association to support youth participating in the 37th annual Junior Livestock Show and Youth Fair, Jan. 9-11.
Each year, the Kiwanis Club takes donations and pledges from businesses and individuals. The funds are pooled for the for the benefit of participants in Saturday’s youth fair and premium livestock auctions who might need additional support.
Donors can pledge to specific students at the buyer’s table, located near the auction ring, where add-on sheets will be available. A finalized list of students participating in the Clay County Junior Livestock Show and Youth Fair will be available on The Pioneer Sentinel later today.
For those who are not able to attend Saturday’s youth fair and premium livestock auctions, donations can be given to any member of the Henrietta Kiwanis Club member or CCJLA board member.
Donations are tax deductible.
