It’s difficult believe it’s 4-H Fair time already! Wow! When I was a kid, the onset of the 4-H Fair meant it wouldn’t be long until the Bureau County Fair rolled into town ... followed by that first school bell ringing, calling us back to school.
I hope you’ll take some time this week to check out the 4-H Fair, held at the Bureau County Fairgrounds and beginning on Thursday. You’ll see a host of great projects and animals, all created and developed by area youth. It’s impressive, and I never walk through the 4-H Fair without being positively influenced with what I see. On top of that, I think it’s great for our area youth to see the public admiring their work and applauding their efforts.
While you’re there, you’ll also see a host of adults — parents, volunteers and other supporters of 4-H. Make sure you give them a well-deserved pat on the back, since they are the driving force that helps youthful dreams to soar. You’ll also see a lot of awards — ribbons, trophies, plaques, etc., but I contend each and every 4-H member is already a winner for their participation in this fabulous organization. I’ll see you there.
