First Time for Everything

          You’d think after doing this job for 40 years that I’d have done everything, but not in Extension! There’s always a new opportunity waiting around the next corner.

 

Nebraska State Fair

          If you are planning to attend the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island this year make sure you check the schedule. There have been a few changes and I’d hate to have you go the wrong weekend and miss your favorite events.

          One major change is the State Fair 4-H Dog Show – which now will be held in Lincoln and it is now called the State 4-H Dog Show. It was announced due to facility changes at Fonner Park, the 2019 State 4-H Dog Show will be held on Saturday, September 7th at the Animal Science Complex on the University of Nebraska–Lincoln East Campus.

Green Blur of Activity!

 It’s been a blur of 4-H activities the past week or so which seemed to create a green blur for many – especially me! Here’s a quick rundown of past and future opportunities!

 4-H Adventure Camp

Cuming, Colfax and Burt Count Extension worked together to put on the annual 4-H Adventure Camp which was held Friday, June 7 in West Point. Fifty-eight 8-11 year old campers attended with 19 of them from Burt County.
