Sanborn County 4-H Building Addition Project

Sanborn County has a very active 4-H program and we have outgrown the current 4-H Building. 

              4-H Members in 2004 = 30 ** Today = 160+

              4-H Shooting Sports in 2008 = 15 ** Today = 90

Plans are underway to expand the 4-H building so that we can better accommodate our activities including the 4-H shooting sports program that meets on Sunday afternoons and Tuesday nights from January-April, our annual Achievement Days, and many other 4-H activities.

We also have a need for current and potential community and school activities throughout the year including meetings and workshops, graduation receptions, showers, family reunions and get-togethers, Forestburg alumni reunion, school plays, FFA activities, marching band practice, cheerleading practice, and much more.

The drawing is a rough draft but is intended to show that the current building is current 100' x 60'.  The addtion will also be 100' x 60' and will include a family/handicap-accessible restroom and off - kitchen storage.  The addition will be constructed on the north end of the current building.


A major step in this process is of course fundraising! Total goal is $300,000. To date we have raised/have commitments for $125,000+ of this amount. We intend to raise the remainder through donations, fundraising and grants. This brochure will provide a rough draft of the planned addition, donor level opportunities and information on the need for the addition.

You may contact any of the Building Committee members for more information: Scott Senska, Art & Audrey Kneen, Andy Ettswold, Riley Zoss, Rod Weber, and Paula Linke.  The Sanborn County Commissioners have committed $100,000 to this project.  We invite you to join us as we grow into the future by being a donor for the Sanborn County 4-H Building Addition project.
