  • "To serve by establishing committees to work with Cooperative Extension County Office staff in the planning and implementation of yearly educational programs, and adopting 4-H activities to meet needs within the county."
  • "To create and control trust/scholarship funds for the benefit of the Grafton County 4-H Program and its youth members."
