MaxYield Cooperative recently made a contribution of $1990 towards the membership dues for all Clay County 4-H members. The check, presented on December 4, will pay $10 of the $35 state dues for 4-H members in the county. This membership not only allows students to showcase and compete with their projects at the Clay County Fair and Iowa State Fair, it also provides them with opportunities to participate in conferences, workshops, and community service.
