On March 1, the Anderson family travelled to Winnemucca to receive an award that was the first of its kind to be given to a business. In years past, this award has only been given to individuals deserving of recognition. Anderson’s Food Town was recognized for their many years of service and countless contributions to the White Pine County 4-H program. There is now a new plaque being made University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s state office in appreciation for their commitment to White Pine County youth and 4-H program. Anderson’s Food Town, Lee, Leeann, and Keith have been long-time supporters of the 4-H and FFA Livestock Show and Sale that happens every August. Lee Anderson began buying market animals from county youth in the 1950’s. Today the Anderson’s have their own “Hall of Fame”, a wall 16 feet long; covered with “thank you” pictures from the youth that have received the support of this generous family. They have not only been financial supporters but project leaders and committee chairs as well. It is because of people like this that our youth programs can be successful. Thank you to Anderson’s Food Town and all others in the community that continue to support the 4-H program and its values.
