Combining all the 4-H shows between DeWitt, Macon and Piatt Counties could be on the horizon and it could all take place in Clinton.
Doug Harlan is the unit Director for the University of Illinois Extension office in DeWitt, Macon and Piatt Counties and indicates combining the livestock shows and the success of the decision has them thinking about combining all the fairs in the future.
To make space to host all three counties' 4-H projects, Harlan says they will need to improve facilities. He notes they have added barn space for their livestock shows and they have plans for a new home-ec building.
Harlan says he doesn't know when all this will happen or how they plan to get there.
To contribute to the projects planned at the DeWitt County fairgrounds, you can contact the University of Illinois Extension Office or the DeWitt County Farm Bureau.
