Ford County 4-H presented their 4-H Meritorious Award recently to KanEquip, Inc.

Receiving the award was store manager, Shawn Blattner at the Ford County 4-H Achievement Banquet.

This award is presented to either a person(s) or a business who has provided outstanding service to the county 4-H program.

The Dodge City KanEquip store has a long history of supporting our Ford County 4-H program.

They have donated items for the Ford County Far Giveaway, Toy Tractors for the Fair Pedal Tractor Pull, premium money for the livestock Sale and for King and Queen Fair candidates.

They have loaned a small tractor and gator during the county fair to help with fair set up and clean up, work the horse arena and to move equipment and display cases around during the fair.

KanEquip has supported 4-H by sponsoring media ads, posting 4-H posters and activities at the store.

The management and employees show support individually by donating to local 4-H fund raisers through the years.
