The Grubes Look Forward to Hosting You at the 2017 Legacy Dinner!

Plan now to enjoy the 2017 Fairfield County 4-H Endowment Dinner on June 22, at the home of Karl and Judith Grube. The Grubes  moved to their farm home at 1225 Canal Rd, Baltimore, in 1962. They’ve raised 3 children – Karyl, Joyce, and Greg – on the farm, and all three were members of Thurston Future Farmers 4-H Club and showed hogs at the fair for each of their 10 years in 4-H. The girls were also members of 4-H sewing clubs and participated in the Jr. Fair Queen program. Greg was named Outstanding 4-H Member in 1986.
