Employees attended the 4-H Blue Ribbon auction at the Aitkin County fair July 11th. The Blue Ribbon auction show cases the 4-H program for youth. Whether youth are building rockets, raising dairy cows, or writing musical plays, 4-H gives them the skills they need to succeed in life. 4-H is delivered throughout Minnesota in urban, suburban and rural communities. In 4-H, youth design and participate in their own programs and activities. This unique, learn-by-doing model teaches kids essential, transferrable skills that they'll use throughout their lives, such as problem solving, decision making, coping, communicating and responding to the needs of others. Security State Bank is proud to contribute to the 4-H program. And a special thanks to the Chute family for bringing their goats visiting the bank lobby in Aitkin pictured with Security State Bank staff.
