Youth Organization Celebrating 100 Years

One of Canada’s longest running youth organizations is marking 100 years in 2013 and will celebrate the upcoming anniversary this morning at the Manitoba legislature.

4-H Canada will announce a special philanthropic partnership with Food Banks Canada, with representatives from the province, Enbridge Pipelines Inc. and MacDon Industries Limited.

More than 8,000 trained volunteer leaders help more than 26,000 4-H members develop self-confidence and learn a wide variety of skills through hands-on project work.

The announcement will take place on the front steps of the legislature at 11 a.m.
