|2003-2004 Montana 4-H Clover
Nice place for a swim...
ers use Phon-a-Thon to raise money for 4-H camp
The Flathead Teen Council, directed by the Flathead County Teen Ambassadors, is making their county'
s 4-H camp facility better and better -- one phone call at a time.
By talking with donors and supporters about their own 4-H experience, these teens gain self-confidence and relationship building skills during their annual Phon-a-Thon. The project raises funds for the Montana 4-H Foundation and Teen Council community service activities.
In 2002, the teens pledged their Phon-a-Thon receipts to the repair of the Darrell Fenner 4-H Camp facility in Ferndale. They contracted for a new floating dock to be built and even obtained grants from the Cinnabar Foundation in Helena and the Wal-Mart Foundation toward their project.
For the past 8 years, Flathead County has had one of the highest 4-H enrollments in the state. Nearly 590 youth are enrolled in 25 4-H clubs, and over 250 non-club youth participate in special interest projects and camp experiences. Over 200 volunteer adult leaders help make this all possible.
