4H Fair With Marjorie L. Nicholas Keith (Aired on July 22, 2017 and July 23, 2017)

Putnam Country 4-H Program (Aired on July 22 and 23, 2017)

Marjorie Nichols Keith , Executive Director of the Putnam Country Cornell Cooperative Extension, brings 4-H Club member Grace Fisher (11 years old) to
RadioRotary to help tell about 4-H programs and the annual Putnam County 4-H Fair in Veteran Memorial Park in Carmel. The 200-some 4-H members in the County, ages 5 through 19, are joined by as many as 300 other volunteers to produce the Fair. Although we often think of 4-H in terms of young people raising livestock, Grace explains that the club helps teach leadership and life skills —“it’s not all about cows and cooking.” The Fair is a big family event with food booths, music, a plant sale, horse and dog shows, an auction, and activities such as Touch a Truck and a fishing contest. Putnam Country Rotary Clubs often sponsor tents at the Fair.
