Fundraiser For Local 4-H Students


Hard work throughout the year earned two youth top placements at the Oregon 4-H Shooting Sports State Contest this August. Ben Spangler of the 4-H Anchor Point Archery Club and Lincoln County Marksmanship Club earned medallions and Champion ribbons in two separate disciplines, Archery and Shotgun. Jonathan Dutton of the 4-H Anchor Point Archery Club earned a Reserve Champion ribbon and medallion in Archery. Both young men qualified for the 2022 National 4-H Shooting Sports Championships, held each year in Grand Island, Nebraska on June 26-July 1, 2022.


Only four youth plus an alternate from each state are allowed to attend the Nationals in each division. Both Spangler and Dutton have secured a spot at the National event due to their top placement in their respective disciplines. Both young men plan to participate as part of Oregon’s Archery Team, comprised of four members from three counties. Oregon 4-H will help pay for the fees associated with their attendance at the National Championships,

however, the team is responsible for fundraising the remainder of the cost of the trip, including travel expenses to get to Nebraska. Ben and Jonathan plan on fundraising in a variety of ways to offset the remaining costs.


During the month of December, they will be selling See’s Candies, Wreaths and

participating in Bottle Drives. See’s Candies and Wreaths will be available for sale at JC Market and the Lincoln County Commons (Fairgrounds) through December. Ben and Jonathan will be selling at the old Pick of the Litter Building on at the Lincoln County Commons, Wednesdays and Thursday 5p-7p, Fridays 12p-7p, Saturday and Sunday 9a-7p. A variety of See’s Candies will be available for purchases as well as beautiful handcrafted wreaths. Wreaths can be purchased for $20-40 depending on the size, special orders available on

request.


Clean bottles and cans can be dropped off at the Lincoln County Commons (old Pick of the Litter building) Tuesday-Thursday from 3 pm -5 pm or at the Extension Office (located at 1211 SE Bay Blvd in Newport) during normal operating hours through the month of December 2021.
