4H BARNS & PROGRAM 2017-04-10T00:19:43+00:00

Project Description

I pledge my head to clearer thinking, my heart to greater loyalty, my hands to larger service, and my health to better living, for my club, my community, my country and my world.

Be sure you don’t miss the 4-H exhibits and livestock shows while you are at the Jackson County Fair! Livestock shows and educational demonstrations will take place at the fairgrounds all week. Feel free to stop and talk awhile with the 4-H members on the grounds caring for their animals because they all have a story to tell. Download a map of the fairgrounds so you know exactly where you want to visit first.
