Organizers of the annual DeWitt County 4-H Fair are celebrating a successful 2019 show.

 

Lindsey Burden is 4-H Extension program coordinator at the University of Illinois Extension Office in DeWitt County. She says it was a busy couple of weekends that went very well from her perspective.

 

 

The DeWitt County 4-H Show has combined shows with Macon and Piatt Counties over the last few years and Burden believes the more kids and families in those areas get used to the change, the more onboard they are with it.

 

 

This year during the show, Burden arranged for some fun and games for youth to participate in to pass the time. She explains there can be a lot of standing around at times during the weekend so she wanted something for the kids to do.

 

 

The new 4-H year is now underway. We'll have more on that from Burden soon on Regional Radio.
