Don’t miss the Somerset County 4-H Fair tonight
Its “Free Family Fun,” and tonight is your last chance to check out the 3-day Somerset County 4-H Fair, on Milltown Road, In Bridgewater!
In Somerset County, 4-H is so much more than…
“Cows and Cooking!” For example….
Check out all the club displays!
And, the arts and crafts!
There are lots of animals to see (and pet)…
…from dogs and cats to rabbits…
…and guinea pigs…
Above, its like “old home day.” I’m holding a guinea pig…I raised and showed hundreds of guinea pigs as a teenager in 4-H! By the way, “cavies” (as they are also known), are not from New Guinea, nor are they related to “pigs.” But, that’s another article for another day!
Check out the sheep and goats, and cows…
…and horses, too!
Yes, there’s even a “herpetology” (SNAKE) club!
Did you know there is a Robot club…clubs that celebrate different cultures from around the world…a model rocket club…a movie-makers club…
…and a Train club, to mention just a few! If you are interested in it, you can form a 4-H club!
One can join 4-H as early as 7 years old, thanks to “4-H Prep” which started as a model program in Somerset County, many years ago!
This is YOUR chance to see the projects that the 4-Hers have been working on all year…to support the kids and their clubs…and to have a fun night out with family and friends!
Hungry? Grab dinner “out” tonight! There is a big food tent, run by area organizations, with proceeds going to good causes! Food is the only place where money changes hands, at the Somerset County 4-H Fair!
Back in the day, I was a long-time Somerset County 4-H member!
Walking around the fair yesterday afternoon….the sights, the sounds, the smells…I was instantly a teenager again. I’m biased, but it is the best 4-H Fair in the country, and its still the same fair of my youth!
In addition to all the memories (and I met up with a few people I haven’t seen in years), I got a chance to hang out with the “Jersey Prize Team” yesterday afternoon!
Thanks to all fair goers who stopped by to say HI, and to play some games with us, and win cool prizes!
You have til 10:00 tonight to check out the Somerset County 4-H Fair for 2014!
Its not to be missed!
Thanks for your support of the Somerset County 4-H program, and New Jersey 101.5!
