Soup Supper and Country Auction set


The Del Norte County 4-H column runs monthly. This installment was written by Christine Jones.

Fall is in the air, and it's almost time for the annual 4-H Soup Supper and Country Auction.

As some of you may have noticed, the event will be held a little earlier this year, Saturday, Oct. 5. This year's Soup Supper will be kicking off National 4-H Week, which runs Oct. 6andndash;12. We will also be celebrating 100 years of 4-H in Del Norte County.

Tickets are $7 for adults and $4 for children ages 6 to 12 and can be purchased from local 4-H members or at Crescent City Hay and Feed, D and B Storage, Del Norte County Fairgrounds, Del Norte Office Supply and Parkway Feed.

Soup, warm bread, vegetable trays and desserts will be served from 5 to 7 p.m. at the fairgrounds. A silent auction will start at 5 p.m. and a live auction at 6:30 p.m. We have a wide array of soups to choose from this year, including our ever-popular clam chowder, chicken noodle, cream of broccoli, split pea and chili.

The Soup Supper and Country Auction is the only county-wide fundraiser for Del Norte County 4-H. Proceeds from this event are used to run our local 4-H program. This includes scholarships, travel programs, community service projects, county awards, 4-H events and essential office supplies when county funds are depleted.

Many Crescent City and Brookings businesses and individuals have donated items for our live and silent auctions. We've even had a few not-so-local businesses donate as well.

Last year we added the chance for businesses to become sponsors. Sponsorships range from $50 to $500. If you are an individual or business owner and would like to donate an item for the auction or would like to become a sponsor, contact Del Norte County 4-H at 464-4711, or message us on our Facebook page Del Norte 4-H.

Come join us for a night of good food and fun at the annual 4-H Soup Supper and Country Auction.
