Farm, Home and Youth Fair, 2017
The Farm, Home and Youth Fair (formerly the 4-H Fair)was held on Aug, 10-12. Unlike the scalding temperatures last year, this year’s fair was pleasant and rain-free. Our 4-Hers did a great job of educating the public about alpacas as they walked them around the fairgrounds.
In the competition segment on Saturday, Kylee won the 12-14 age group in showmanship and agility and went on to be crowned Grand Champion. Vanessa achieved the same success, winning the 8-11 age group in showmanship and agility. For her effort, she was the Reserve Champion. Ironically both girls are first-year club members. Congratulations!
In the 15-18 age group Sarah won the showmanship blue ribbon and Maggie, taking King Arthur in his very first competition, won the agility portion.

Congratulations to all the participants, some of whom had to contend with reluctant animals.
