The Community of Lucknow, ON

For Joan Finlay, manager of the TRU Country & Garden in Lucknow, Ontario, supporting the community is part of the store’s mission. “We give back to the community because the community supports us.” One way the store supports the community is through the local 4-H club. For over a decade, they have been supporting the 4-H beef, dairy and sheep clubs. Every year they provide prize money or gifts as well as supplies for the showmanship and confirmation invitationals. The club members win prizes during the different events based on showmanship and presentation.
Lucknow is a community in south western Ontario. The 4-H clubs of Ontario are made up of members and leaders with the intent of personal development and growth in many different areas. Members can be involved in more than one group and learn many different skills.
