Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU!!

Thanks 4-H’ers for putting the work in to make your project a success and for the contributions you made to others. Each year at the fair, I’m reminded of the talent and promise of our 4-H’ers!  It would’ve been easier for you to just sit on the couch, but we are glad you took the more rewarding option of engaging in your learning. W ith such an amazing group of youth comes optimism for our communities’ futures! Great job!

Thank you club leaders for your help and guidance to get all 4-H’ers and their projects to the fair!  Your volunteer hours are priceless!!!

Thank you Livestock Superintendents for your guidance and leadership, preparations before the fair, finding trophy sponsors, running things smoothly in the livestock barns and running successful shows!  Your commitment to 4-H is critical to the success of livestock projects.
