Montana 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth development program in the state and they are holding a fundraiser at the Eagles Lodge in Missoula. Parent of 4-H Member Mike Riska explains.

“We get some club members to help serve and clean up and stuff like that,” said Riska. “They make the dinner serving matadors, which is like a giant smothered burrito. They are $7.50. We will also have a 50/50 drawing and the club gets so much money out of the whole deal.”

According to Riska, the 4-H club helps teach kids important lessons for the future.

“The 4-H is a specific club geared toward kids that teaches them a lot of lifelong lessons and responsibilities,” Riska said. “Most people probably think of it as raising farm animals and stuff like that, but it is really a lot more than that. There are lots of different projects that kids can get involved in.”

The event is on Thursday January 12 and is from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Eagles Lodge on South Avenue.
