Livestream Camera Operators Needed

We are excited to share that Elliott and Rosemarie Daley have stepped up to coordinate our livestreaming of the various livestock shows and auctions at this year's fair.  With that in mind we are in need of volunteers to assist as livestream camera operators.  All equipment is provided and set up at each show arena.  All you need to do is monitor the livestream and occasionally turn and zoom the camera in to follow the action of the judge and youth in the show ring.  The link to view the livestreams will soon be updated in the 4-H mobile app.

Please click the button below to sign up for one or more shifts to run a camera.

Bikes for Kids Donations Being Accepted

Keeping with tradition, the Junior Leaders Club and Senior Fair Board are planning to assemble and donate Bikes to various local groups as we have done for more than 15 years now.  However, with rising costs - the cost to purchase a bike has gone up to $100.  Donations of any amount are welcome but we know many clubs have voted over the years to sponsor 1, 2, 3, or more bikes.  Please consider supporting this wonderful cause at whatever level you're able to.  Checks should be made payable to Wayne County 4-H Committee and are due to the Extension Office by October 5th.
