MONTESANO, Wash. - It was standing room only as over 150 showed their support of the 4-H program to the Grays Harbor County Commissioners yesterday during a special extended session in Montesano.
With no real negative comments, some spoke of personal experiences; 10 year old Elma resident Christopher VanKlaven explained that his Busy Beavers 4-h club has helped him with his Autism "I'm doing well in school, since 4-h. If 4-h wasn't here, I'd have nothing to do"
County Commissioner Mike Wilson explained, prior to the meeting, that the commissioners have made no decisions about the extension "we are talking about everything that we can to save money for the county."
The requested funding for the year 2010 is $168,000, County Director for the WSU Extension Program Steve Harbel said that in order for it to exist the county has to contribute some amount of funds.
