Typically when you think of re-gifting it is passing on an ugly tie or a fruitcake that you don’t want in to someone else. But with the Trigg County 4-H Grand and Reserve Champion Hams, that is not the case!

The generous buyers who have already made a huge donation to Trigg County 4-H are now donating the hams to others. The grand champion ham was purchased by Kentucky Machine and Engineering, Bank of Cadiz, Lawrence Brother Farms, Carver Oil Company and Christian County Livestock.

Chappell Allen asked that his ham be donated to Shady Lawn Nursing Home. The buyers of the reserve champion ham, Trigg County Farm Bureau and Fourshee Building Supply asked that their ham be given to the Trigg County Senior Citizen Center.

So in this case, re-gifting is a wonderful thing, three different organizations have benefited from this generous gift. Thanks to all the supporter and bidders on the 4-H ham auction.

Educational programs of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.

This press release was submitted by Janeen Tramble, Trigg County 4-H Extension Agent for Youth Development.
