Exhibits Selected for State Fair

Judging of static exhibits takes place on Monday. The judges will select the top exhibits to go to the State Fair. 4-Hers whose exhibits are selected will receive a State Fair 150 pin! See the picture below. Isn't it cool!!!


We found Flat Herbie with Tracy this afternoon, getting State Fair stickers ready.
The excitement is rising!


KanEquip meal on Wednesday

KanEquip will be offering a free meal to 4-H Kids, the families and customers on Wednesday, August 7th. They will be serving Pork Chops on a Stick and Hot Dogs. Yum! They will begin serving at 5:00; it will end when the food is gone. The KanEquip booth is on the north side of the Open Air Auditorium. Thank you, KanEquip! We appreciate your generosity!


Nominations for Volunteer Recognition

We will be accepting nominations for Cass County Volunteer awards at the fair this year. In the past this was done after the fair, but what better time to make nominations than during the fair when so many of us witness the great things volunteers do! Nominations will be collected in the 4-H office during the week of the fair.
