4-H Youth Fair just over a week away

-A A +A
By Roberta Hunt

4-H members work hard all year to complete projects, whether it is using their hands to make a skirt or woodworking project, showing an animal or presenting a speech. Many 4-H members will be competing or will be honored for their achievements over the coming weeks and the honors they receive will be shared.

The 4-H Youth Fair will be Friday and Saturday, Apr. 26-27. On Saturday, the public is invited to come at 10 a.m. to the Washington County Extension Office to see projects 4-H members have completed. Youth and parents alike can enjoy petting animals, sponsored by the 4-H Spurs and Furs Club and they would love everyone to stay for lunch. For more information on the 4-H Youth Fair, contact the extension office at 336-7741.

The 4-H Talent Show was postponed Friday, due to unforeseen circumstances. We are looking for another available date to hold the show and will announce that in coming news articles. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

We are in the middle of our 4-H Speech contests and will have results in as soon as possible. The Co-Wide Talk meet will be held on Tuesday, May 7 with the location to be announced soon. Please continue to watch the Springfield Sun for details.

Reminder to all 4-H members who sold candy bars: please turn your money in as soon as possible. We would like to close out the books on the candy sale. If anyone is interested, we still have candy available for purchase at the extension office.
