Sincere appreciation to several volunteers (Linda Parson, Helen Muncy, Herb Muncy, Jeannine Reynolds, and Felicia Adkins) for donating their time to help grade 4-H projects. These volunteers spent three full days to grade projects. Our program has over 200 projects that were completed by 3rd graders last fall, so their time and dedication is a tremendous help to our office for this year's Wayne County Fair which is tentatively scheduled for August 4-8, 2020.
