Happy Valley 4-H club coordinated a countywide effort to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House by collecting pop tabs. Beginning in the spring of 2019, the club began a drive for all Brown County 4-H clubs to collect the small tabs from aluminum cans. Clubs brought their pop tabs to the Brown County STEM Innovation Center for a weigh-in on Saturday, October 5th.

Brown County 4-H clubs and groups together raised nearly 600 pounds of aluminum tabs by collecting at various events and locations throughout Brown County. Through additional partner-ships and charitable contributions from local organizations, Hap-py Valley 4-H club will present a donation of more than 700,000 aluminum tabs as well as additional cash donations to the Ronald McDonald House of Eastern Wisconsin. They’re not stop-ping there.
“Our vision is to be able to continue the program each year and hopefully grow and expand to include everyone, whether you collect handful of pop tabs or hundreds of pounds,” said club leader Nicki Van Deurzen.

Anyone interested in helping Brown County 4-H to collect pop tabs can contact bc4hpoptabs@gmail.com.

Brown County has officially launched their new website and domain (www.browncountywi.gov).  The move to a .gov was strategic for the county.  Leveraging the .gov domain for its security, integrity and digital optimization were primary objectives for Brown County. 

Along with added security, look for these added features on the new website:
  • Google Translate – a service that instantly translates words used on a web page into over 100 other possible languages.
  • Site Search – a search service that can help you quickly find what you need on the Brown County website.
  • Email Alerts – sign up for a notification email whenever new content has been posted for Brown County news, events and updates.
  • Responsive technology – the website’s content adapts to suit the individual needs of the site visitor.
  • Social Media Page – Stay connected with all of Brown County’s social media activity across all agencies (Neville Museum, NEW Zoo, Parks, Brown County Library, etc.).
It will take a couple of weeks to finalize all the information and links that are offered on the Brown County website, but the added ease and versatility of the new site highlights Brown County’s digital focus and ease of use for the visitor.
