Please email me for a complete listing of the available delegates. Here are a few more details:
- Delegates from Finland arrive July 12 and stay for one month.
- Greek and Austrian delegates each need two host families for three weeks each.
- A third group of young ladies will arrive September 19th and visit for three months, so they need several homes around the state for 2-4 weeks each.
This year's delegation looks to be very exciting. Several come from farm families, some want to ride horses or go fishing or visit a city, and others have already hosted international delegates in their own homes. Wouldn't it be neat to host this year and then have your children travel abroad in future years?
The possibilities are endless! Please consider hosting a 4-H exchange delegate! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
In the mean time, Maxine Henry has stepped up as President of the fair, and Sarah Lohman Altman will be Vice-President. Former President Scott Johnson has returned to help with the fair's Building and Grounds Committee--an important job in this year of changes and growth for the fair. We ALL (parents, 4-H'ers, staff) need to do what we can to help make the fair the best it can be this year, so please inventory your skills and schedule and offer up what you can. The fair theme is so true: "We've got a good thing growing..."
Congratulations are in order to 4-H in-school participants, including Unique Stinnie, who earned a blue ribbon in vocal, and Deonte Lucas, who earned a red ribbon in presentations. Stay tuned for more results from the Bealeton contest!
