WI Herd 4-H Night

Wisconsin 4-H Night with the Wisconsin Herd was a success with over 100 youth and families in attendance. At least 8 counties participated, and we were able to market 4-H to all in attendance! Of the 8 counties that participated, Fond du Lac had at least 52 of the tickets.
Before the game, youth were able to participate in some activities such as making posters and shooting baskets. At the beginning of the game, youth got to create a tunnel for the players as they went on the court. Youth also had an added bonus; they got to be on the court when the players were announced! The game also featured celebrating the Bucks. Youth were able to get their picture with Pointer and Bango and see the Rim Rockers perform.
There are plans in the works for another Herd 4-H Night during the 2022-2023 season. You won't want to miss out on this opportunity. Clubs are also welcome to go to a game for a club outing. If you would like any information please contact Tracy.
