The Decatur County fair is here!

Here it is, at last.

We’ve been waiting for this week for a year. Yes, if you haven’t looked lately, the Decatur County Fair is here. Everything begins tomorrow. If you don’t already have your exhibits ready, why not look around for something to take? If we don’t have the exhibits, we don’t have a fair! I’m sure there is at least one thing you can find to take; if not a craft project you’ve done, perhaps you have a collection, an antique, or an ugly shoe or purse you can take.

All the grand and reserve champion foods entries, plus any others that the exhibitors wish to donate will be auctioned off on Monday evening. Following this will be the annual pie eating contest. Teams are still needed for this event, so any businesses or other groups who would like to sponsor a team please contact Janet Bedel at 663-4563.

I can remember the days when I was a 4-H’er. That was always the culmination of my summer’s work. Of course, we had three or four months to get projects done as the fair wasn’t until the middle or last of August. I can remember especially making yeast rolls. I would make a batch every other day or so to try to get them perfected. My dad loved it as he could eat them as fast as I made them. I think I drove my mom mad with my sewing projects as she just knew I would never get them finished in time.

I was the same way with my own kids as I didn’t want them waiting until the last minute. It drove me crazy worrying if they would ever get them done. Nowadays there are so many different projects in 4-H. I wasn’t able to take animal projects, so the cooking, canning and sewing were about all there was for me to do. I guess that is what I learned to do the best and what I still like to do.
