Mutual of Wausau Insurance awarded a $400 grant to the Hamburg Hawks 4-H Club on Monday, June 18. Mary Felzkowski, owner of CIS Group Insurance Agency in Tomahawk, presented the award to club leader, Colleen Schult at the Hamburg Municipal Center. The Municipal Center and Maple Grove School are two of the club’s local projects.
“The money will pay for flowers and soil in the two flowerbeds that the Hamburg Hawks plant annually. Club members and their families volunteer their time throughout the summer to water and weed the flowerbeds which are enjoyed by many in the community,” said Colleen.
The purpose of the Mutual of Wausau Insurance Corporation 4-H Club Grant Program is to support 4-H Clubs in youth development and to promote civic and leadership responsibilities. The grant program is open to any 4-H Club located in the Mutual of Wausau coverage area. CIS Group Insurance reached out to the Lincoln County UW Extension Youth Development Dept. to forward on the grant applications to local 4-H clubs.
