Spring 2013 Bulb Sale


Materials for our Buncombe County 4-H Spring Bulb Sale are ready to be picked up at the Extension office.  These materials include sales sheets with color photos of the bulbs that we are selling through Dutch Mill Bulbs.  The flower/bulb packages sell for $7.00 each.  For each sale made by a club, the club receives $1.75 and the County Council receives $1.75. The 4-H member who raises the most funds will receive a $25 Clover Cash Certificate.

In keeping with last year’s procedures, we are requesting that ALL monies collected be turned into the 4-H office and we will in turn issue each club a check for the amount raised ($1.75 per individual sale).  Checks can be made payable to “Buncombe County 4-H County Council”.

We are asking that all order forms and funds be brought to the 4-H office NO LATER THAN 5:00 pm on Tuesday, April 30th, 2013.

This has been a very positive and successful way for our 4-H County Council to raise funds in the past, and we hope to have another successful fundraiser this year.  The proceeds that go to the County  Council will be used to fund Clover Cash Certificates, leader scholarships to training and chaperoning events, partial scholarships for 4-H’ers to attend 4-H activities, and to help pay for some of the supplies for county 4-H activities.

Please contact Holly at holly_jordan@ncsu.edu to make arrangements to pick up sales flyers for your 4-H club.  If you have any questions about this fund-raising opportunity, please call the Buncombe County Extension office at (828) 255-5522.
