Spring Cleaning? Donate show boots, belts, shirts, jeans, jackets to the Showmen’s Closet

The Fairfield County 4-H Advisory Committee is pleased to continue The Showmen’s Closet this year. Donations are currently being accepted to stock our closet. Junior Fair families can spend a lot of money buying new show clothes and boots each year as their children get bigger! To help one another out, we are asking for donations of jeans, show shirts, boots, belts, white jackets that are in good to new condition (no holes please). Items should be clean (including those boots!).

Items will be donated to the 4-H Advisory Committee. They will be available for families to purchase by donation back to the 4-H Advisory Committee at each Skillathon event in September. All proceeds will benefit Fairfield County 4-H events planned and sponsored by the 4-H Advisory Committee.

Vendors Needed – Christmas in July Craft & Vendor Show – July 27, 2024

The Fairfield County 4-H Advisory Committee hosts a craft & vendor show each July to help raise funds for the Fairfield County 4-H Program. Vendors pay for their booth space which directly benefits the Fairfield County 4-H Program. The Advisory Committee hosts countywide fundraisers in order to keep dues at a low cost for members who participate in the program.

Vendors of all types are welcome to apply – for more information contact Cindy at cag8845@gmail.com or complete an application (Fairfield County 4-H Vendor Sale Contract 2024) today!

Last Call for 4-H Day Youth Volunteers – share your projects 4-Hers!

4-H Day is coming up on Saturday, March 2nd from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. in the AAA Building at the Fairfield County Fairgrounds. We could not host this “open house” and 4-H kickoff event without the help of our 4-H volunteers, youth, and families. Here is what we need and are looking for:

  • Kids of all ages who want to show off their projects. All projects welcome – bring animals, project books, awards, displays, etc. Setup will begin at 12:00 p.m. and those kids who would like to have a display should contact 4-H Day Chairs, Jessica Scott and Bethany Miller, at fairfield.4hday23@gmail.com to let them know what they plan to bring.
    • Pens and cages will be available IF we know that they are bring an animal. If they bring an animal, they are responsible for feed, water, bedding, and cleaning up after their animal.
    • We will be limiting project displays to ONE per project so please let Jessica and Bethany know what you’d like to bring (i.e. we will not have 3 different members bring 3 pet rabbits!)
  • Adults (advisors….and parents are also welcome) to help with registration, answering general 4-H questions and club placement/check-out. Clubs looking to add members are strongly encouraged to attend and recruit at 4-H Day.

This is a great way for kids to engage in public speaking and add something to their Junior Achievement or Ohio 4-H Achievement Forms (4-H promotion/awareness at its finest!)
