4-H Century of Cents

Head, heart, health, hands — and, for 2013, cents.

Head, heart, health, hands — and, for 2013, cents.

This year marks the centennial for the 4-H movement in Canada, and the provincial branch of the youth organization is setting out to collect one dollar worth of coins and 100 years worth of memories.

In celebration of the anniversary, 4-H Alberta is asking clubs, leaders, alumni and sponsors to submit their reminisces from involvement in the club over the years. The movement’s Century of Cents campaign is seeking pennies from each of the last 100 years to accompany the memories, with the creation of a plaque featuring the coins and the memories the end result.

Anyone with a connection to 4-H is encouraged to submit their memories along with pennies from the corresponding year (s). The deadline to apply is May 1.

There are over 350 4-H clubs in Alberta and approximately 60 in Central Alberta. Further centennial celebrations in the region are pitted for the fall.

Clubs across the country are also engaged in a year-long campaign raising funds and collecting food for food banks. Money collected in the province will be split equally between food banks and the Alberta 4-H Legacy Fund.

Application forms for the Century of Cents initiative are available at www.4h.ab.ca.
