Businesses taking part in fundraisers
October 7, 2020
Loretta’s Burrito Hut and Tractor Supply Co. of Tucumcari will participate in fundraisers for the Quay County 4-H Youth program as pat of National 4-H Week.
Loretta’s at 321 E. Route 66 Blvd. will donate 5% of her total sales from Tuesday through Saturday to the county’s program.
In addition, the restaurant will open for a special lunch buffet from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. 4-H youth will help serve customers at that time, and 4-H leaders will be on hand to answer questions about the program and encourage children to enroll.
COVID-19 restrictions will be enforced during these activities.
“I am happy to support our local youth through the 4-H program that teaches them skills to become productive adults,” Loretta Muller, owner the restaurant, stated in a news release. “I have been wanting to try opening for Sunday lunch to serve the church crowd, so this seems like a good opportunity to test that idea.”
Quay County extension agent Susann Mikkelson praised Muller for her partnership with the 4-H program.
“This is a win/win/win — honor and help our 4-H youth, support a vital local business and have a terrific meal,” she said.
Tractor Supply Co. customers during Paper Clover Days at the store at 1401 E. Route 66 Blvd. can purchase a paper clover at checkout from Oct. 9 through Oct. 20 to benefit 4-H programs. Ninety percent of those funds go to New Mexico 4-H programs, and 10% go to national 4-H youth and development programs.
Tractor Supply also is inviting local 4-H clubs to get involved by setting up a booth in the store, helping bag customers’ purchases, display 4-H livestock and other projects or conduct demonstrations.
Enrollment for the 2020-2021 4-H project year began Oct. 1. Quay County 4-H clubs include C BarC and Tumbleweeds in Logan, High Plains in House, Roadrunners and Wranglers in Tucumcari and Yuccas in San Jon.
