Montpelier 4-H club donates to JRVLS

Members of Montpelier Pioneers 4-H Club had a project called “Cookies for a Cause” where they made monster and sugar cookies and sold them. The profit of $512 was given to the capital construction campaign of the James River Valley Library System as it works toward building a new library. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans provided an Action Team Grant which paid for the cookie-making supplies.

This fundraiser was a way to get youth involved in a project that will be an asset to the city of Jamestown and to Stutsman County, Ann Marks said. The group is challenging other youth organizations or classes to consider a fundraiser of their choice that could help make the new library a reality.

Club members who participated in this cookie-making project were Andy Roorda, Seth Kjellberg, Nate Kjellberg, Leah Peckham, Will Peckham, Reid Fossen, Zoe Hodges, Cheyana Smith, Chloe Smith, Allison Panchot, Kaylee Panchot and Adrienna Panchot. Leaders who directed this group were Tonia Kjellberg, Shelley Fossen, Linda Panchot and Marks.
