Hundreds of people turned out for the annual Del Norte County 4-H Soup Supper and Country Auction on Saturday night at the county fairgrounds. The event kicked off National 4-H Week, which runs through Saturday, and celebrated 100 years of 4-H in Del Norte. It is the only county-wide 4-H fundraiser here, and proceeds help with scholarships, travel programs, community service projects and county awards.
