Email News Alerts

More than 50 volunteers answered the call to help clean up debris flung around the Wadena County fairgrounds by a tornado that destroyed multiple buildings in June.


Mark Haugen, Hubbard County 4-H Program Coordinator, reached out to all county 4-H club members and families to help clean up after 80 mile per hour winds scattered debris.

"4-H families are extremely busy in the summer," he said. "But even on short notice I know that if they can help, they will."
