Dear 4-H Members, Parents, and Advisors,

Thank you to everyone that helped make this year's Wayne County Fair a positive and successful experience for thousands of fairgoers, 4-H members, volunteers, and countless others.  Your hard work and dedication throughout the year is what makes our fair truly one of the very best.

As we begin to plan for the 2017 Wayne County Fair and the upcoming 4-H year - we welcome your comments, thoughts, ideas, and constructive criticism.  Please send your feedback in writing or attend the Junior Fair Suggestions meeting on October 17th at 6:00 pm in the Jr. Fair Office.  In addition as we begin planning for next year it is critically important that we have dedicated volunteers to serve on our committees that work to plan and carry out the 4-H and Jr. Fair program. Please consider applying or nominating someone (18 and over) that you believe would be an asset to either the overall Extension 4-H Advisory Committee or one of the nine 4-H / Jr. Fair Action Committees.
