Fremont County Extension

Congratulations, Penrose Horses & Hounds 4-H Club!

They organized a fundraising event to benefit Nighthawk Ranch in Guffey?   Nighthawk Ranch is a place where kids with cancer can camp and enjoy a real ranch experience.  Check out their website at:  They raised more than $4,000 at their May 24 event.  WOW!   They made 4-H look good!
