Another great 4-H Fair

Well, another 4-H Fair has come and gone. I hope everyone involved enjoyed the experience in spite of the heat. Good times will be remembered by the young folks for the rest of their lives, I’m sure.

I just want to say the community gives a tip o’ the hat to the 4-H officials who make this all come together for the kids every year, and the gals of the Bureau County HCE who do the food stand for the fair each year. Cooking in last week’s heat must have been a real ordeal for them. But the food was there for the hungry when needed. Love that BBQ!

The fair is open to the general public, and if you have never been out to see one, make plans for next year to attend. I think you will enjoy it.
