The 32nd annual event is the main financial support for Lapeer County 4-H programs. Lapeer County 4-H Youth Programs provide a wide variety of opportunities for positive youth development. 4-H is an amazing organization where our young people can learn true life skills such as leadership, citizenship and community through innovative programs and hands-on learning experiences. Last year, over 2,500 youth in Lapeer County were reached through various forms of educational programming, traditional clubs and events. The goal is to keep youth curious and encourage them to explore their interests while building life skills. 4-H also offers scholarships to an annual 4-H Camp retreat at Camp Lael in Lapeer, state and national conferences, and college scholarships.
A 25th Annual Celebrity Autographed Items Auction will be held the prior evening on Friday April 6th, 2018 at the Lapeer Center Building; doors open at 5:30pm. This event will feature over 350 autographed items such as balls, books, cards, posters, and photographs.
