The Orange County Fair Association members are hosting two spring work days. Please join them
Sunday, March 31, 1:00 p.m.
Sunday, April 14, 1:00 p.m.
Wear work clothes, dress for the weather. Bring gloves, hand tools, weedeaters, etc. Many hands make for light work, so please join in! There will also be additional days scheduled as we get closer to the fair.
Mark your calendars for two county-wide workshops in April.
A record book workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 3, at 6:30 p.m. in the public meeting room behind the Extension office. This will be a DIY workshop where youth can get a head start on their record books for the 2019 4-H year. Come join us and learn how to put together a blue ribbon book!

An All Star nomination form workshop will be held on Monday, April 22, at 6:00 p.m. in the public meeting room behind the Extension office. Being tapped as a 4-H All Star is the highest honor a Virginia 4-H'er can receive. The form is lengthy, and the data covers your entire 4-H career, so we highly recommend starting early. Don't wait until you're a teenager, but if you're already close to nomination age, come join us, too. We will review the form in its entirety and help you categorize your 4-H participation in the right places on the form. Parents are encouraged to attend with their child. Sign up for this workshop at https://goo.gl/forms/ELnm0nSuwKz2F7pf2.
Take advantage of these hands-on learning opportunities!
Attention, beef exhibitors and enthusiasts! Junior Beef Round-up (held in conjunction with the Virginia Beef Expo) information is now posted online. Entries must be made through 4-H Online (same process as State Fair) and they are due April 2nd. Don't wait until the last minute because if you need help, the state office staff are only available during 9-5 working hours.
