Picture This! Fayette County

The Fayette County 4-H Leaders have developed a program to keep 4-H members engaged while we’re still waiting to get back together.  We want our members to get out, explore Fayette County, and to learn more about our history.  

We encourage 4-H members to snap a selfie at as many of these places as they would like and email them to JR Davis at  Please include your name and the place of interest. Some of the locations are physical places while others may be historical markers.  We will post your photos to our Padlet page as they come in.


4-H members that take photographs of at least five places of interest will have their name placed for a drawing for a 4-H gift surprise. We will draw three names. This program will last through July 31, 2021.
