More than 100 Teton County 4-H club members will show their best projects at the Teton County 4-H Fair, June 22-29. Many events are planned, including a horse show on June 22 and then from June 26-29, other events including the market animal sale (lambs, swine, beef); a style show; more than 400 exhibits of projects in the Choteau Pavilion; the dog, cat, rabbit and poultry shows; and several other other special events.
Watch next week’s paper for a full schedule of events. We encourage Choteau and area residents to make time this week to visit attend the horse show at the Choteau Rodeo Grounds on Saturday, June 28, and then next week to visit the Pavilion (open on Friday and Saturday, June 28 and 29) and see the amazing artwork, crafts, science projects, and more that Teton County 4-H members have worked on since last October. Come down to the Weatherbeater to watch their large animal shows and to the Choteau City Park for the dog show and the textiles and style show.
Don’t miss a chance to purchase a 4-H animal for high-quality lamb, pork or beef, during the livestock sale on June 29, knowing that your purchase will also help a county 4-H youth save for college or other post-secondary instruction.
Teton County is blessed with a great Extension Office staff, including agents Jane Wolery and Matt Walter and administrative assistants Jamie Smith and Sharla Hinman. They work with a great group of volunteer leaders and the youth themselves to prepare for this week’s many fair events. Please, take time to show these youngsters your appreciation for their efforts and enjoy watching them in the ring and at the various other shows. You’ll find yourself amazed by the talents and accomplishments of Teton County 4-Hers.
