Please add these important dates to your calendar! As many are aware, there has been considerable discussion regarding possibly changing the dates of the Orange Fair for future summers. The fair board will form a committee on September 21st to explore options regarding a different fair weekend in 2013 and beyond. Once options become available, the Extension Office will survey 4-H members, volunteers and parents for input.

Congratulations to Delaney O’Donnell of the Orange Bit N’ Bridle 4-H Club. She and her Virginia 4-H team placed second in performance teams and fourth in horse judging reasons at the 2011 Quarter Horse World Championship Show, held in Oklahoma City in early August. Way to go, Delaney! We are so proud of your accomplishments, and this is one of the first times in recent memory that an Orange 4-H’er has competed in a national horse judging event.
