4-H Mini County Fair visits Halcyon House
The dust of the Washington County Fair barely had time to settle before a traveling mini county fair visited Halcyon House Monday afternoon. Over 30 residents enjoyed a variety of county fair activities led by Leadership Development 4-H'ers.
Twelve Leadership Development members completed their community service project by taking a mini fair to the residents. They decided on this project in April, divided into committees, and planned an afternoon of entertainment for the Halcyon residents.
Residents enjoyed a variety of young farm animal visitors. They also played barnyard bingo, enjoyed lemonade shakeups and corn dogs for a fair snack. 4-H'er Miranda Romser prepared and presented a slide show about the current 4-H program and fairgrounds improvements.
Residents ended the afternoon visiting with the 4-H members about their own 4-H or county fair memories.
Leadership Development is a leadership development class 4-H'ers complete before applying to the high school leadership teams. For more information on Washington County 4-H leadership opportunities, contact the Washington County Extension Office at 319-653-4811.
