Forms need to be back to club leaders by Monday, February 21st with all forms to the Extension office on February 24th. The product will be delivered on Saturday, March 21st to DMU. Money is to be collected at the time of the sale and checks made out to the Crawford County Extension. Each club will receive 25% of the fruit and butterbraid proceeds. The rest of the proceeds go to the Crawford County 4-H program to make all things 4-H affordable and feasible for everyone. The top club will receive $75. This will be calculated by number of items sold divided by the number of members in the club. Additionally, the top five high selling families will receive $50 each.
