    While it may seem like only a distant memory to some, the blue ribbons and champion honors presented at the 2011 Hardin County Fair will live forever in the hearts of many Hardin County Youth. 4-Hers exhibited everything from plants, bird houses, peanut butter cookies, pictures, rabbits, goats, dogs, cattle, sheep and much, much more.

    I cannot say enough about the support from local volunteers who help make all of this possible. 4-H volunteers take time from their already busy schedules to share their knowledge and help put a smile on many Hardin County youth.
