Despite the heat and rain sometimes getting in the way, the Wabash County 4-H fair has officially wrapped up what officials are calling another successful year.

“We definitely feel like the fair was a success,” Mindy Mayes, Wabash County 4-H Extension Educator, said. “It was an amazing fair, but our one challenge was always the weather. You just have to pick the dates and take whatever weather you get.”

The first fair blood drive saw over 31 donors and took in 23 “good” units of blood. This also marked the first year of themed days, like “Hawaiian” and “favorite college team,” which was an idea implemented by the 4-H Junior Leaders. First-year activities like “Goat Yoga” and camel rides had to be canceled due to the heat, while the inaugural volleyball tournament got rained out and then rescheduled.
