4-H Poinsettias make Festive Holiday Décor and Great Gifts
Poinsettias are a perfect way to instantly decorate for the holidays and they make excellent gifts for everyone on your list. The Orange County 4-H Program is pre-selling foil-covered red, white and pink poinsettias in various sizes as well as beautiful 12″ poinsettia mum bowls. Your poinsettias will be ready for pick-up the first week of December at the Orange County Extension Center or will be delivered by the 4-H member with whom you placed your order. Each plant sold generates support for 4-H Clubs and the Orange County 4-H program. Everyone benefits when you purchase poinsettias – you enjoy a festive home or office and our 4-H members gain opportunities to participate in activities that help them learn and grow.
Florida 4-H offers quality programs for 4-H members to develop valuable life skills . Youth are encouraged to engage in these learning opportunities at the local, state, and national level. However, participation can be costly, so financial support is needed to ensure these opportunities are available to all 4-H members. During the 2018-19 program year, the Orange County 4-H Association awarded more than $5,000.00 in scholarships for youth to attend camps, educational workshops, leadership events, and competitions supporting positive youth development. Successful fundraising such as the poinsettia sale is critical to the continued support of these valuable opportunities for our local youth.
