PARIS – The 4-H “Building Tomorrow, Today” campaign, to support youth education in the Western Mountains of Oxford County by building a trust fund administered by the Pine Tree State 4-H Foundation, went into full swing in January.

The fund would assure that the youth development programs in Oxford County would be available in the future. Four-H has a tradition of youth education across Maine and has grown in Oxford County to reach more than 6,000 youth annually. Ages range from 3 to 19 years, and programs include global education, service learning, career education, team leadership science and technology and after-school enrichment.

To date the response from individuals and businesses has reached more than $100,000. People wishing to make a donation can contact the Oxford County Extension Office for more information. Contact person is Susan Jennings, Extension educator, 9 Olson Road, South Paris, ME 04281; telephone 743-6329 or 1-800-287-1482.
