4-H offers Christmas on the Farm
December 16, 2011 · Updated 4:06 PM
The King County 4-H Horse Program will be putting on Christmas on the Farm in Enumclaw from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 23.
Children ages 12 and younger from the Seattle Union Gospel Mission will be bused in to spend the day on the farm with the animals including horse rides; lunch; coats, gloves, scarves and socks. The Enumclaw Fire Department will be coming with a fire engine and transporting Santa, who will take photographs with the kids. This is the second year the organization has tackled this project.
In addition to this event, all 4-H horse clubs will be flying “Save King County 4-H” banners along local highways. With no more funding available, 4-H programs in King County are on the chopping block. All programs – horses, cats, dogs, goats, cows, cooking, sewing, 4x4s, horticulture, inner city after-school programs – and more will be affected.
