Western Implement to donate $6,000 to 4-H club

Western Implement will celebrate 60 years in business by donating $6,000 to a 4-H club in Western Colorado.

“We’ve supported several Western Colorado 4-H animal sales over the last several decades. It’s only fitting that as we celebrate six decades in business that we would further support the kids and the families that our business was founded on,” said Jim Coleman, a member of the family that’s operated Western Implement since the business was founded in 1959.

Western Implement will donate $6,000 to the 4-H club that receives the most votes in a contest scheduled to run through 11 p.m. Dec. 18. People can vote at 4h.westernimplement.com or in person at Western Implement locations in Grand Junction and Montrose. Participants can vote daily. Each online vote will count as one vote and each in-store vote will count as two votes.

The 4-H organizations in Mesa County as well as Delta, Garfield, Gunnison, Montrose, Ouray, Rio Blanco and San Miguel counties are participating. For more than 100 years, 4-H clubs have offered development programs to millions of youth.
