4-H Flea Market Food Stand

2016  Schedule: to be uploaded soon.

Refer to the February Clover Line for the open dates

Lottery days are those not filled prior to March 1st. Clubs fill the lottery on an alphabetical rotation. When all Clubs have taken a turn, the list starts over.  Clubs can choose one, two or all three shifts, on a first come, first get basis – – typically involving 6 to 9 clubs each year.. All shifts not voluntarily filled by the evening of the March Leaders Inc. meeting will be assigned at that meeting.

The Flea Market Food stand is the major fundraiser for Shawano County 4-H. 4-H Clubs and Key Committees operate the stand. Clubs profit is figured after bills (bakery, inventory supplies, etc.) are paid. The 4-H Leaders, Inc. commission of a flat 15%, is used to pay for the bad weather guarantee, food stand equipment, manager services and repairs/maintenance. The Leaders, Inc. voted that clubs will get reimbursed from the Leaders to make their profit at leat $150.00 for rain-out or unprofitable Sundays.

Fair Food Stand Funds

When choosing shifts for working at the fair food stand, some leaders wonder why it is necessary to help out as you feel you don’t receive any benefits from working. Actually, this is the major fundraiser for Shawano County 4-H Leader’s each year. It is because of this that we don’t need to be out there selling candy bars, pizzas or any of the other numerous possibilities. Funds help pay for:

  • Sponsorship’s for campers and award trip recipients.
  • Funds for educational grants to key committees.
  • Literature used by members, the fee you pay for books is discounted from full price.
  • Volunteer background checks at $7 per leader. Mandatory on each leader every 4 years, having 60-70 volunteers re-checked each year.
  • Awards and discounts on meals at the annual 4-H experience.
  • Support for the Adventures in Dairyland Program, a two-week curriculum offered to 4th grade classrooms throughout the county.
  • Many other incidental expenses we don’t need to pass along to the members because this food stand raises that money.

So when your club leader asks you to volunteer a couple hours of your time, we hope you look at this as an opportunity to give back to the organization that has offered so much for your family this year.
