FREMONT – The Fremont 4-H Expo will kick off next Wednesday and run through Sunday, giving local 4-H’ers the opportunity to show off their year long projects in everything from livestock rearing to plant science.
4-H began in the early 1900’s as Corn Clubs for boys and Canning Clubs for girls. Although the program has changed a lot through the years, it has always been a program designed to help children become productive members of their agricultural communities. The national 4-H program celebrated its 100th birthday in 2002, and has a strong membership in Fremont and the surrounding area.
The 2018 Fremont 4-H Expo will begin with the horse show on Wednesday, July 11th. Thursday, July 12th, local 4-H participants will show their dogs, sheep, dairy, calves and meat goats. The culinary contest will also take place on Thursday, in addition to a special presentation on meat labeling.
Friday, July 13th will see the Beef Show take place, and a community luncheon will immediately follow. Don Peterson and Associates will host their annual watermelon feed before the 4-H Shooting Sports Competition replay kicks off later that afternoon. Saturday, July 14th in the Multi-purpose building will be a free pancake breakfast, followed by the swine show, rabbit show, and poultry show.
Throughout the 4-H Expo, there will be multiple static exhibits on display for projects in the following areas: Clover Kids Exhibits, Communications & Expressive Arts, Consumer & Family Science, Environmental Education/Earth Science, Healthy Lifestyles, Personal Development & Leadership, Plant Science, Science, Engineering & Technology.
