Runnels County 4-h invites local youth to the 4-H Fun Fair at the Community Center on Tuesday, September 2, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and a free hotdog supper will be served from 5:30 until closing.

The 4-H Fun Fair is an event dedicated to showing local kids all about 4-H. 4-H is a youth organization that focuses on the four H’s: head, heart, hands, and health, and teaches kids of all ages and backgrounds how to be a leader in their club, their community, their country, and their world.

At the fair, there will be booths set up to show off all of our amazing projects, which include Foods and Nutrition, Photography, Leadership, Public Speaking, Shooting Sports, Clothing and Textiles (Sewing), Consumer Education, Entomology (the study of bugs), and Livestock. There will also be a General Information booth set up at the front to answer any questions and help kids get signed up for 4-H.

Even though 4-H is for kids in the third grade or older, all local kids and their families are welcome to join Runnels County 4-H for an evening of fun, learning, and, of course, hot dogs.
