Looking for new projects to bring to the fair? Well, look no further! We are starting a series called “4-H Friday”. Every other Friday, we will post a project from the Pierce County 4-H Premium Guide with information on the project, ideas for the project, and information needed to make the project fair ready! The first “4-H Friday” will be November 6th. You can find the highlights here or on our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/UNLPierceCounty/.
