Join your Friends at the 2014 4-H Reunion

Plans are shaping up for a great 4-H Reunion on Sunday, July 20, 2-4 p.m.in Christy 4-H Hall in Nevada. The program at 2:15 will feature former County Fair Queens. The Fair Queen tradition started in 1972 and has continued every year since. We are looking forward to welcoming them back to the Story County Fair. The 2014 Iowa State 4-H Hall of Fame Honoree from Story County and the 4-H Alum of the Year will be presented. Katrina Weich, a Clover Kid and Luke Fevold, a 4-H’er will share what is exciting about 4-H today. Prizes for the 4-H’ers in Action contest will be awarded plus an update from the Story County 4-H Foundation. Bart Clark, 4-H Alum will be the emcee.

Step back in time through the displays of Story County 4-H History books along with a fair queen memory book and photos. Anyone who would enjoy talking about 4-H today and the past will enjoy this afternoon. Refreshments are courtesy of South Story Bank.

County Fair Queens to be Honored

Plans are being made to honor past Story County Fair Queens the 2014 4-H Reunion. Contacts have been made with queens scattered throughout the U.S. and Australia. Sue Uthe (left) was the first queen in 1972. She and Saundra Longhenry (1995 queen) are looking at the pictures and memories that former queens have contributed to the Fair Queen Memory Book.
