Another DeWitt County 4-H Fair is in the books and it was another year of great participation in DeWitt County.

 

Kim Gibbons with the University of Illinois Extension office explains this was the third year Macon and Piatt 4-H participants have been a part of the show in DeWitt County. She says it's bringing people together.

 

 

Because of the combining of the shows with Piatt and Macon Counties at the 4-H fairgrounds, the need arose for more space for the livestock. DeWitt County Fair Board President Dan Enos says they completed a new barn on the grounds just in time for the fair this year.

 

 

A growing interest in 4-H locally is the robotics. A brother-sister team at the 4-H Fair in DeWitt County were Jake and Maddie Franklin from LeRoy. They explain the robotics club has provided them with opportunities and lessons they hope to carry to the future.

 

 

Some 4-H members will shift their focus to this coming weekends fair in Farmer City, others will prepare for the Illinois State Fair next month.
