The Roundup -

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


4-Hers show their market steers at the 2016 fair.

Richland County 4-H has 12 amazing clubs that have been participating all year in many different 4-H events. Within the 12 clubs we have 224 members, including Cloverbuds and 136 adult volunteers. With all the growth in the 4-H program, throughout the years, 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 that youth can now enroll in include projects from sewing to sport fishing, cooking to cowboy action, and woodworking to robotics. The 4-H exhibits will be on display from Wednesday August 2nd at 1:00 p.m. to the conclusion of the fair on Saturday, August 5th. 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, July 31st at 10:00 a.m. at the Fairgrounds and will continue on Tuesday, at 8:30 a.m. We also invite all to come and watch the small animal shows starting at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 2nd. The livestock shows will begin on Thursday, August 3rd 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 4th 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 5th the 4-H members and Alumni will be participating in an obstacle course at 10:00 a.m. This year the obstacle course will be new and different! It is a fun and amazing event. All are welcome to attend these fun and entertaining events to support the Richland County 4-H members and program.
