Hans Toensfeldt | February 1, 2023
We have lost a most valued member of our community this week. Hans passed away peacefully, surrounded by family Wednesday evening. As many of you know, he has had health problems for the last few months. He was active in our community to the end and has added so much over the 40+ years. A memorial will be planned and I will keep our community informed. If you have a story about Hans, please share with me and I will make sure the family gets it. He will be missed!

THE CLOVER FOUNDATION
The Clover Foundation of Santa Clara County is a non-profit corporation organized by spirited public citizens dedicated to the development and growth of the county’s youth. The Foundation utilizes private resources to enable individuals or organizations to advance the membership, leadership, and influence of 4-H, FFA, and other youth development programs.
The Foundation’s mission is to provide financial support not currently available through public sources. It accomplishes this through monetary donations from individuals, businesses, foundations, and civic groups.

Loan applications for sheep, swine, and goats will be due the last Friday in February. Mark your calendars.

Applications are due to the Clover Foundation the fourth Friday in April. If necessary, interviews will be held at a location and date to be determined.
No-interest Livestock Loans for 4-H and FFA market animals are available for youth residing in Santa Clara County. The money is available from the Ed Vargas Livestock Fund. The number of loans granted may be limited by available funds, so do not delay in contacting the Foundation.
HERITAGE HOG SCHOLARSHIP
Be part of the Clover Foundation by raising the next Heritage Hog and earn a $5,000 scholarship. We will cover the expense for the purchase and feed of the animal.
