It’s Sweet Potato Time!

RRPJ-4-H Sweet Potatoes-17Sep15


Red River Parish 4-H Clubs will be Pre-Selling Sweet Potatoes for the upcoming holidays. The potatoes will be sold as a “Bakers Box” of 40 pounds. The cost is $26.00 per box.

4-H Agent Terry Foster said, “A limited amount of boxes are available, so act now to buy your sweet potatoes. If you would like to order, our 4-H members at the local schools are promoting sales this year and will have referral information sheets.”

Foster noted, “The 4-H club member will get Clover Bucks for every purchase made from one of their referral sheets. Please make sure to give a 4-Her’s name at the time of your purchase. “

This year, no money should be given to the 4-Her. All payments must be made at the 4-H office. Foster said, “You are welcome to come by the LSU AgCenter at 2015 Red Oak Rd (above the Health Unit) to place your order. Or you may mail a check made out to “Red River 4-H Foundation” to the LSU AgCenter, P.O. Box 1364 Coushatta, LA 71019 with a note of how many boxes you would like, your contact information, and 4-Her name who referred you.”

“The Sweet Potato pickup date (tentative to weather permitting)” said Foster, “will be on November 17th from 9:30 am – 4:30 pm at the Red River Parish Fair Grounds. All boxes must be pickup by 4:30 pm on November 17th.”

Foster said, “For more information contact the LSU AgCenter at 318-932-4342 or 318-932-4242. We thank the community for your past years of supporting Red River 4-H!”
