EUGENE, Ore. — The Lane County Fair is right around the corner and this year 4H youth programs are back.
Tuesday was entry and judging day at the Lane County Fairgrounds. Kids dropped off their exhibits for categories like photography, baking and plants. Animal entries take place later in the month.
The Lane County 4H program went on hiatus in 2010 because of a lack of funding. This year, area kids can once again get hands on experience thanks to a dedicated group of volunteers.
“So we actually have this superstar group of eight people who’ve come really from all over the state. They’re different people who’ve worked with 4H, or retired teachers who’ve worked with kids a lot, who’ve agreed to come for the day and volunteer their time,” said Kate Hammarback, 4H Coordinator.
The Lane County Fair runs from July 24-28. For more information, click here.
