Dreher Family 4-H Building

The Dreher Family 4-H Building was built through the generous donation of Helen Dreher to meet the needs of all Douglas County 4-H'ers. The Douglas County 4-H Foundation has created these policies for the use of the building.

The primary purpose of the building is dedicated to 4-H/Extension educational activities. 4-H groups will have first priority for use of the building, followed by Douglas County Extension. Government entities, not-for-profit tax exempt groups, other organizations, and businesses may have the opportunity to rent space, providing their application is approved by the committee. The building is not available for personal use, (i.e., family reunions, weddings, or for commercial resale, religious or political campaign uses). Appropriate uses of the building should provide a benefit to the community. The Dreher Family 4-H Building committee will make final determination on the approval of all rental requests.
