From east to west, 233 clubs will benefit from the funding for next year for both the provincial and national level initiatives. The FCC 4-H Club Fund awards up to $500 for a wide range of projects including achievement days, skill-building workshops, field trips, public speaking competitions, and the purchase of club supplies.
