LAWRENCE CO. – Two nights of the Lawrence County 4-H Fair remain and this year’s fair will be in the books. The fair is always a time to make new friends, compete for a blue ribbon, but most of all a love for a passion for animals, art, and other skills that will help develop youth into business and careers for their future.
The livestock auction will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday. This is probably one of the hardest times for those who become attached to their prized animal. Spending hours caring and looking after their needs and finally having to say goodbye.
The money earned from the auction is used by todays 4-H members for things like, funding their education, or to purchase their first new car, or just saving for their future. This is also a great financial instruction that is much needed in our youth today.
Lawrence County 4-H Fair week goes quickly, seeming it just starts and comes to an end just as quickly.
This year’s fair may not have had the traditional carnival rides but the Cincinnati Circus brought smiles to children and adults alike. Silly Safari taught about various animals such as raptors, and music from local musicians will entertain the crowd in the Battle of the Bands tomorrow at 3pm.
We take a look back through some photos of this year’s fair and hope it was a good time. Most of all the 4-H youth have earned another accolade of appreciation for their hard work and dedication to see a project through.
