It’s time for the Richwood Independent Fair! While participation in a fair is certainly not a 4-H requirement, it is an opportunity that many members look forward to all year long. Many volunteers have been planning, adjusting, and re-imagining Jr. Fair Activities to meet current guidelines. Although the Fair Schedule and many other things will be different this year, please work cooperatively with Fair directors to make your fair experience a positive one. I am thankful that we are able to participate as 4-H families. As updates come, we will be posting them here on this site

The USDA Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) was established to fill the gap when children lose access to meals when schools are closed. Most often this occurs during summer vacation. However, during school closures related to the pandemic, meals are also being made available. You have the opportunity to supplement the food you have at home with meals and snacks for your children from local schools and community organizations.
