The Cherokee County 4-H clubs, which have a special project this year to raise funds to construct a new building at the Cherokee County Fairgrounds to replace the existing, aging, 4-H Building, have continued to receive donations towards the project from area businesses and organizations. These generous donations, along with several fundraising projects by the 4-Hers, have moved the project along nicely.
Bob Donahoo, left, Cherokee County Farm Bureau President, presented a check in the amount of $500 to Sue Schwaller, 4-H Facilities Betterment Project committee member following the Board's monthly meeting recently. Cherokee County Farm Bureau is pleased to be a part of the project to provide needed facilities for agricultural education and events for Cherokee County 4-H youth and the public. The project will provide a new indoor show arena for cattle events and stalling area for horses during the Cherokee County Fair as well as additional improvements to the adjacent cattle barn. The multi-purpose facility will also be available for varied events throughout the remainder of the year such as open livestock shows, 4-H livestock weigh-ins, clinics, Shooting Sports practice area, and auctions. It is hoped the new building will be in place for the 2010 Cherokee County Fair. Photo contributed
