MUHLENBERG COUNTY, KY (8/28/12) – The Kentucky State Fair is always a fun adventure but even more so when we have 4-H youth and adults competing for best in show and bragging rights in their divisions.
This year 4-H had 8 youth competing. Will Lewis won a blue and purple class champion for his geology display; Matt Thompson won two blue and a class champion purple with his wood burning; Lee Abbott won 2 blue and 2 red with his art and photography; Jacob Abbott won 4 blue and 3 red with his art and photography; Jessica Ashley won 2 blue and 1 class champion purple with cake decorating and her photography; Sarah Vincent won a blue with her jewelry making and a red in scrapbooking; Hannah Everett won a blue with her banana peppers from her 4-H gardening project; and Haley Cornette won a white with her canning. The 4-H Horse Club won first place in the drill team competition which was held in July as part of the Kentucky State Fair.
Also members from our Paradise Bee Keepers Association brought home wins. Nathan Lovell won first place with his honey comb and Logan Porter won second place with his bees wax.
We were very impressed with Muhlenberg County. If you are interested in finding out how you can be part of this impressive group, just drop by the Cooperative Extension Office or call 270-338-3124 and talk with one of the agents to see about all the helpful classes and information that is always available to every person in Muhlenberg County.
