At each stop, 4-Hers, leaders and NMSU Extension faculty rolled out the red carpet to welcome the riders and give them a small sample of the leadership and development programs NMSU Extension provides to 76,000 youths across the state. The 4-Hers provided each rider with a memento of their visit - ranging from a leather key chain, to a commemorative print of a original watercolor of the 2013 Ride for the Clover, to a motorcycle cookie decorated with a 4-H clover.
NMSU Regent Chair Mike Cheney says the enthusiasm was so strong at the end of the ride that plans are already underway for a 2014 ride. Contributions and donations to help New Mexico 4-H programs are still welcomed at the New Mexico Youth Development Foundation.
p>More than 70 bikers and support vehicles celebrated NMSU's 4-H program during the 2013 Ride for the 4-H Clover. NMSU President Garrey Carruthers and Regent Chair Mike Cheney headed the list of NMSU dignitaries and motorcycle riders making the two-day tour of NMSU's 4-H and Extension programs in southwestern New Mexico.
Thanks to each rider, 4-Her, and NMSU Extension faculty member who worked so hard to make the 2013 Ride for the 4-H Clover an overwhelming success.
Mike Cheney: Tell me about the ride!
Jon Boren: Why support New Mexico 4-H?
