Franklin County Fair adds to list of area fairs going virtual

first_imgBrookville, IN— Last evening the Franklin County 4-H Board met to decide on this year’s fair.  After reviewing the guidelines issued last week by Purdue Extension County office for holding face to face July events and after thoroughly considering the feasibility of meeting this list of requirements, the Franklin County 4-H Association, with guidance from the Purdue Extension Franklin County office, has decided that all 2020 Franklin County 4-H Fair Events will be held virtually. This decision was not made lightly and there was much discussion and many factors were considered according to Angie Riffle, the CED, Extension Educator, and 4-H Youth Development.  The Association says that it simply could not meet the requirements presented to us with the facilities, time, and volunteers that we have available. In addition, it became apparent that any in-person event facilitated would be an irresponsible risk for them to impose on our youth members and volunteers.  More information and detailed instructions will be sent to members in the near future, and they will be in touch with volunteers to discuss the virtual options for specific projects, such as livestock.last_img read more
