The Stephenson County Pork Producers will be doing the grilling, featuring their special seasoning. Potato salad or chips, cheese from local cheese producers, applesauce, drink, and dessert is also on the menu. Two serving lines and special carry out line will be available. The dinner is planned by a committee of Foundation members and other 4-H volunteers, and donations from local businesses and restaurants help make it possible and profitable. “For the past eleven years, this dinner has been one of the major fundraisers for the Foundation, and it is a special, very social event,” stated Bonnie Campbell, President of the Foundation Board and Davis Rockets 4-H Leader. “Each year,” she continued, 4-H members and volunteers work together serving food, running the silent auction, and talking with supporters.” In addition to providing a delicious meal, supporters of 4-H and Extension have an opportunity to learn more about activities and programs in the county, and see many of their friends. Advanced tickets are $6.00 and may be purchased from members of Stephenson County 4-H Clubs or at the U of I Extension Office, 2998 W. Pearl City Rd, Freeport, until March 22. After that, tickets will be sold at the door for $7.00 and hot dog meal tickets will be available at the door only and not sold prior to the event. Many area restaurants and businesses have provided items for the meal and silent auction, and the Foundation appreciates their support. There will be a silent auction with gift baskets created by 4-H clubs and other opportunities to support local 4-H clubs. All proceeds will benefit the Stephenson County 4-H and Extension Foundation and stay in Stephenson County.
