A fish shaped cake! A pop can tractor! A colorful barn quilt! All of these are projects brought in by 4-H’ers from across the state today. As Fair creeps closer (yes, we are only a day away!), the 4-H Exhibit Building is filled with judges, volunteers, and staff working to get the building ready for the public. Personally, I enjoy catching up with those that I see setting up for the 4-H Building each year. Several of the people I have been working with for the past two days are the same people that were at pre-fair set up my first year volunteering in the Visual Arts department.
4-H’ers- your hard work on your projects is greatly appreciated. Without you, we wouldn’t have an exhibit building filled with creative projects to show the public. Your community service and leadership throughout the year is appreciated by your individual communities and the state of Iowa. 4-H is proud to have you as a positive role model for the youth in Iowa.
Volunteers- your help preparing for Fair is greatly appreciated. Even more importantly however, your positive attitude and commitment to the Iowa 4-H program year around impacts youth from across the state.
Thanks to you all as we make the 2009 Iowa State Fair the best one yet! It’s Fair Time!
