Lane County 4-H Fair 2017
As you may or may not know, the 4-H youth fair is coming up in about a month (the dates are July 19-23 at the Lane County Events Center.) 4-H is a great way to connect with the future leaders of America and support the youth of Lane County.
This year, the 4-H fair coincides with the Lane County Fair, so there is plenty to do for the whole family. 4-H is a wonderful program that many of us here at the Farm Store participated in while we were younger. I showed hogs, dogs and horses, but also entered in the photography, horticulture, container gardening, educational displays and many other events as well.
The most bittersweet experience for me was when I had to sell my hogs at auction. I was happy to receive the money for college, but sad to see them go. I made many great friends and am still friends with many of them (like the Deedons.) Without 4-H, I don't know where I would be today.
Although it may be a little late to enroll your kids this year, there is always next year. To find out more about the 4-H program in Lane County, click here. To find out more about the Lane County Fair, click here or here for the schedule of events.As always and until next time,
