Greetings, 4-H members and families! Your friendly neighborhood office staff members are preparing for County Fair 2020 for both Nuckolls and Thayer counties. This year's fair will be unlike anything you've been part of before due to COVID-19 modifications and safety precautions, but we are still going to learn, grow, compete, and celebrate with our local 4-H and FFA youth. Thank you to all of the 4-H Council members, club leaders, and other volunteers who have dedicated time to helping us put on a fair during COVID-19.
