Portage County Randolph Fair UPDATE

June 3, 2020

The Portage County Board of Directors appreciates your understanding during these difficult times. We are uncertain what the future will hold for our County fairs as many questions are still unanswered.
At this time we have decided to proceed with planning for a Junior Fair following state, local and health guidelines. During this planning process safety of all remains our top priority. The Board of Directors will work with County 4-H leaders, numerous volunteers, local fire, health and sheriff’s departments.
Details will be determined over the next few weeks and communicated as soon as possible. We request your patience and understanding during this time.

Donation to Portage Co 4-H from Drs. Belli & Streit!

ATTN: Ashley Hughey, Portage County 4-H Extension Educator

Press Release for 4-H blog and Facebook page from the orthodontic office of
Dr. Stephen Belli and Dr. Laura Streit, Kent OH


We wish to thank the many 4-H members who invited us to attend the 2016 Portage County Randolph Fair Livestock Auction.  For over ten years, it has been and continues to be our passion at Belli Streit Orthodontics to show support of 4-H by purchasing animals from several members.  In the past, this expression of support, though very important, has benefited only a few.

This year we have chosen instead to make a monetary donation to the Portage County Extension Office that will be of benefit to each of the 850 members in all branches of 4-H.  We believe this is the best choice in expression of our heartfelt support of the goal of 4-H, which is to “develop citizenship, leadership, and responsibility in all individuals who participate.”

We are currently working with Ashley Hughey, Portage County 4-H Extension Educator, to decide the exact designation that will make the greatest impact for everyone.  A public announcement will be made from Mrs. Hughey when the contribution is finalized.

In light of our sincere interest in your accomplishments and our wish to share it with the community, we encourage you to post pictures and descriptions of your projects on our Facebook page  In doing so, you will help us all to realize the diversity and talent that exists in all branches of 4-H.

Congratulations on the completion of your chosen projects for this year.  Our team at Belli Streit Orthodontics looks forward to seeing you at the fair.
