Milford 4-H club looking for old records

NEW ULM — The Milford 4-H club celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, and club members would like the residents of Brown County’s help in trying to piece together the club history prior to the 1990s, where current records start.

The club, which is currently the largest 4-H club in Brown County, was founded in July 1927, according to the Brown County Extension office. Members would welcome originals, scans or copies of any old photos, secretary minutes, rosters, newspaper clippings or anything else from 1927 to the 1990s. Anyone with records of any Milford 4-H activity from the last 90 years should contact Michele Schroeder at 276-4810.

This year, the Milford 4-H club has done nine community service projects to commemorate its 90 years in Brown County. Even after 90 years, the club still works hard to “Make the Best Better,” which is the 4-H motto. The club always welcomes new members. Members take projects to the county and state fair in areas varying widely from foods, clothing, self-determined, dairy, or gardening to photography, club scrapbook and llama.
