Fogle and Armand named king and queen

GREENSBURG — There’s a new queen in town – a new king, too, with both ascending to the throne Thursday night on the Free Stage at the 2014 Decatur County 4-H Fair.

Lexie Armand was named the 2014 4-H queen on the opening night of the annual county fair, alongside Kyle Fogle, who garnered 2014 4-H king.

The pair take over for 2013 4-H king and queen Andrew Martin and Kayanna Wolter, respectively, both of whom were on hand Thursday night to pass on their crowns and ribbons to their successors.

Sharon Miller with the Decatur County Purdue Extension Office, which organizes and coordinates all 4-H-related fair events, told the Daily News that the new king and queen now become the 4-H face of the 2014 Decatur County Fair.

Anytime there’s an activity at the fair, Miller explained – livestock shows, grandstand events, etcetera – Armand and Fogle will be present, representing 4-H and assisting organizers and participants. Other times, they can be seen strolling the fairgrounds, mingling with fairgoers, socializing, assisting wherever needed and generally representing 4-H to the best of their abilities.

Drew Soendlin was named second runner-up for 2014 4-H king, while Brady Oliger took first runner-up. In the contest for 4-H fair queen, Morgan Nobbe was named second runner-up, with contestant Megan Vaderbur taking first runner-up.

Ten-year 4-H members were also recognized as part of the proceedings on the Free Stage Thursday night, as were 4-H volunteer adult leaders. Participants in the 2014 4-H Fashion Review also showed off their fashion creations.

The 2014 Decatur County 4-H Fair is currently being held at the Decatur County Fairgrounds daily through July 17. The event opens each morning at 8 a.m. For more information, call the extension office at 812-663-8388.
