HENRY— 4-H members from across Marshall-Putnam counties participated in the Marshall-Putnam 4-H Show, July 16-20. The 4-H Show was at the Marshall-Putnam fairgrounds in Henry. The 4-H Show is where the youth display what they have learned during the last 4-H year.
On July 16, the show began with the dog show. Youth compete for a spot at the state dog show in Dixon. They need to compile enough points to attend state. M-P will be sending two members to the state dog show on Aug. 25.
General project judging began on Tuesday, along with the rabbit, poultry and horse shows. On Tuesday evening, the Fashion Revue took place with 4-Her’s modeling their clothing and shopping exhibits. Prior to the Fashion Revue, the new 4-H Ambassadors were announced.
Of course, the show does not go on without the help of many volunteers. The volunteers work many positions such as judges, assistant judges, superintendents, junior superintendents, set up and take down, cleaning crew, building supervisors, food stand, blood drive helpers and pie makers. It also takes many trophy sponsors to pull off a show like this.
