At the April 3rd Green County 4-H Adult Leaders meeting, Dave Schlabowske of the Wisconsin Bike Federation presented Green County 4-H with a check for $3000 as a thank you for assisting with the Monroe Rest Stop during last year’s Ride Across Wisconsin event. Ride Across Wisconsin is a 175 mile biking event in which participants ride from Dubuque, Iowa, to Kenosha, Wisconsin. One of the reasons Wisconsin cycling is so special is that most of our low-traffic rural town roads are paved, thanks to our Dairy industry. As a small thank you to Wisconsin’s family farmers, riders make donations to 4-H as part of the ride. The Bike Fed then matches those donations. This year RAW will donate a total of $6,000 to the Green County 4-H, with the second check presented after the ride.
