Ontario Legislature wore green in support of Show Your 4-H Colours Day

TORONTO, ON (November 6, 2019) – In Queen’s Park, members of the Progressive Conservative Party of Ontario and the Ontario Legislature wore green in support of Show Your 4-H Colours Day. Every November on Show Your 4-H Colours Day, 4-H participants, volunteers and alumni across the country wear green in celebration of an organization that has positively impacted generations of Canadians.

“For more than a century, 4-H has played an important role in strengthening Rural Ontario and empowering our youth to become future agriculture leaders,” said Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. “I am honoured to wear green today to recognize the crucial work 4-H does inspiring young people to reach their full potential here in Ontario and across Canada.”

On November 6, not only are 4-H’ers wearing green, but there will be a number of Canadian landmarks lit up in green, including the CN Tower, Niagara Falls and the Princes’ Gates Arch at Exhibition Place.

Show Your 4-H Colours Day made its debut in 2007 and has been celebrated nation-wide for the past 12 years. To learn more about Show Your 4-H Colours Day and how 4-H’ers are celebrating in their community, follow the hashtag #ShowYour4HColours and visit Showyour4hcolours.ca
