Congratulations to All of Our 4-H Members on their Amazing Accomplishments!
The parade float meetup for July 14 at the Mann residence has been canceled due to a family health emergency. A new date will be determined.
Our last club meeting before fair is tonight!
Be sure to read the minutes.
Fair entry forms are due on Monday, July 15. Please bring it if you wish for Cindy to turn it in. We’ll have the premium book so we can help with filling in Departments and Class numbers. Scroll to the footer on this website under Helpful Links to download the form. If you are in Horse or Dog that is the separate form, and some members might need multiple entry forms. If you are in livestock you have fees and the Code of Ethics Form as well.
Only 3 members are currently signed up for demonstrations. That means everyone else has their demo done, right?!? If not and you’re not sure what to do, please contact Cindy or Anita.
County shoots have begun. Best wishes to all of you competing in shooting sports!
Anita and Cindy will be available at Construction Supply House starting at 6:00 p.m. on July 26 to review and sign record books while club members work on the float.
: If you want to participate in any of the dog show activities then you MUST enter on the fair entry form and submit it July 15. This is NOT a requirement to participate—it is an option. To complete the dog project, the dog record book must be completed and turned in to Cindy by September 12. If you are participating in the dog activities prior to fair then the record book must be up-to-date and taken to the check-in at the shows.
CAT: If you want to participate in the cat show then you MUST enter on the fair entry form and submit it July 15. This is NOT a requirement to participate—it is an option. To complete the project, the cat record book must be completed and turned in to Cindy by September 12. If you are participating in the activities prior to fair then the record book must be up-to-date and taken to the check-in.
Also, Cat projects may participate in the county fair. If you would like then the record book must be completed and a display board completed. This must be on the fair entry form as well. Following fair entry, sign up for an interview time. Again this is optional but strongly encouraged.
