The 2017 Angelina County Youth Fair coming April 18-22 to the George H. Henderson Expo Center in Lufkin. The Huntington Business Owners Buyers Pool (HBOBP) is busy at work getting even more donors from last year to participate.
The Angelina County Youth Fair is an annual event allowing Angelina County students to present their projects for competition in divisions of livestock, arts and crafts, home economics, and ag mechanics. The event culminates with the Annual Youth Fair Auction, where students sell their projects to local businesses and supporters. And that is where the Huntington Buyers Pool comes in.
Ideally, all local business and citizens are encourage to go to the sale and see firsthand our youth at work, but if you not able to attend, this is your opportunity to be involved by going through the Huntington Business Owners Buyer Pool.
Last year the Huntington Business Owners Association hosted a reception for participants and presented checks in the amount of $5,535.00 to every Huntington 4H or Huntington FFA individual who made a sale. All monies collected was given back to the kids.
Making this all possible for our kids were donations made by our local businesses and individuals. The HBOBP needs YOU to help make this a better year than last year!
The HBOBP encourages you to contribute even a small amount as they all add up. That is why this community is so special - when we work as a team, great things can happen in supporting our youth and recognizing their efforts.
Donations can be taken to Jerry’s Tire Shop located on Highway 69 or mailed to HBOA, P.O. Box 445, Huntington, TX 75949. Please make checks payable to HBOA with a notation stating that it is for the buyers pool.
