The Roundup -

4-H Members to Participate in Richland County Fair and Rodeo


Brady Gorder shows his Grand Champion market beef at the 2015 Richland County Fair.

The 4-H program in Richland County has been growing. Richland County 4-H has 12 active and incredible clubs that have been participating all year in many different 4-H events. With all the growth in the 4-H program, the livestock barns and exhibit building at the fair will be full of exciting exhibits for people of all ages. The 4-H Exhibit Building this year will have a vast display of projects completed by Richland County 4-H members. In the 4-H program, youth have the opportunity to partake in projects that enhance important life skills. As 4-H in the nation continues to grow 4-H projects are becoming more diverse. The projects in which youth can now enroll include projects from sewing to sport fishing, cooking to skate boarding, and woodworking to robotics. The 4-H exhibits will be on display from Wednesday August 3rd at noon to the conclusion of the fair on Saturday August 8th. We would like to invite everyone to stop by and take some time to enjoy the exhibits that Richland County youth have completed this past year. The horse show this year will begin on Monday, August 1st at 10:00 a.m. at the Fairgrounds and will continue on Tuesday at 8:00 a.m. at the Sidney Saddle Club. We also invite all to come and watch the small animal shows starting at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 3rd. The livestock shows will begin on Thursday, August 4th at 8:30 a.m. and continue on Friday beginning at 8:00 a.m. In addition the market livestock program will be holding their annual sale on Friday, August 5th at 5:00 p.m. at the 4-H arena. The sale will be following the 4-H award ceremony starting at 4:00 p.m. and the Cloverbud Animal Parade. On Saturday, August 6th the 4-H members and Alumni will be participating in an obstacle course at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome to attend these fun and entertaining events to support the Richland County 4-H members and program.
