Our next Junior Leaders meeting will be held on Monday, May 3 at the Wayne County Fairgrounds. Since we were unable to complete our annual Bikes for Kids service project back in December, this year we will be helping the senior fair board to assemble sheep pens for this year’s fair. After the pens are set up, we will have refreshments and Barry Joliff will lead some games and activities in the sheep arena. We will be meeting at 7:00 PM in the sheep barn. Since the 50-person limit for events has been lifted, no sign-up is needed for this month’s meeting! Come ready to help out and have fun!
