4-H & FFA COUNTY FAIR NEWS & UPDATES
Lancaster County Fair Keeps Growing
The Lancaster County Fair has seen rapid growth since moving to the Lancaster Event Center in 2001. This year, the trend continued with increased exhibit entries and overall attendance.
4-H at the County Fair shares in the growth.
Jay Wilkinson, member of the Fair Board and Extension Board helped construct more poultry pens. The increase in exhibits caused unexpected hassles, but its a good problem to have, he said.
New at this years fair was a 4-H Air Rifle Shooting Trailer presented by the Lancaster County Shooting Sports 4-H Club. Certified instructors supervised youth at the mobile shooting range.
Members of the Carpe Diem 4-H club created a dozen Fun Sun Pinatas as Summer Blast! fair theme decorations.
4-H staff member Tracy Kulm said, Im constantly amazed at the quality and creativity of the projects entered by 4-H youth.
Lancaster County 4-H would like to extend thanks to all the volunteers who help make the county fair a successful learning experience for youth, said 4-H staff member Gary Bergman. Adults and youth working together is a foundation of youth development.
This year, a second exhibitors breakfast was added and nearly 1,000 meals served! Norm Nicholson of Countryside Energy said, We just want to support the 4-H and FFA youth in every way we can. Every year, the breakfast just gets bigger and bigger.
