The members of Lake County Fair Foundation had their 1st Annual Picnic in the park. It was quite yummy, even down to the homemade ice cream! 15 year old Erin Evans, her 9th year in 4-H brought to the event her ewe, which she raised and is donating to the LCFF. The lamb will be sold at the end of the Junior Livestock Auction Saturday, Sept. 3rd. Erin is the 3rd generation of her family to show sheep at the Lake County Fair. Bron Falkenberg is donating a goat which was also “born and raised” on his farm here in Lake County, Bron is 14 years old and it’s his 9th year in the 4-H program. If you are interested in coming to the Lake County Fair Junior Livestock Auction registration it begins at 10:30 with a buyer’s luncheon after. Thank You Erin and Bron for your generous donation. Come talk with all the 4-H and FFA students about their animal’s. The four H’s stand for Head, Hands, Health and Heart. FFA is also a national organization that stands for “Future Farmers of America.” What a great group of students!
