Fair favorites

Week at the Cass County fair gets underway

Family, food and fun are just a few of the things that will be at the Cass County 4-H fair this week. Other fan favorites — to name just a few — are livestock shows, a concert, fireworks, lemon shake-ups, and a tractor and truck pull.

Erin Kline, of Fulton County, said her favorite things about the fair are getting the hogs unloaded and socializing.

”It’s great seeing the kids’ hard work pay off,” Kline said. “They work so hard and deserve to be recognized.”

Kline’s children, Cameron and Ashlynn, along with nieces and nephews, are involved in the fair, she said.

Megan Greer, a 15-year-old who has been showing for seven years, is excited about showing livestock. Greer, was with her mother, Leahanne, Logansport, at the fairground Monday. Greer shows cattle and hogs.

”My favorite part of the fair is the cattle show,” Greer said. “It’s a lot of work, but it’s fun and pays off.”

Leahanne said she enjoys watching kids show their animal, and even if they don’t do well, they learn a lot.

For others, it’s all about the food and projects.

Jesse Murdock, a junior at Northwestern High School, was working a booth for the Washington Township 4-H Club with Kim Maxwell-Murdock Monday.

Murdock said he was looking forward to finding out how he did on his drawing project and the elephant ears and lemon shake-ups.

Maxwell-Murdock said her favorite thing is watching her kids. She said the fair is the perfect size because it’s just big enough.

”Cass County is a wonderful community,” Maxwell-Murdock said. “It’s a great place to have kids and grow up.”

Others enjoy looking at the Community Center projects.

Burt Gallaher, Cass County, said he enjoys looking at the photography, paintings. Gallaher said in the past he submitted oil paintings and his daughters were involved in 4-H as well.
