Whether it's grooming their family pet for Wednesday morning's show or memorizing their lines for a public presentation on Thursday afternoon, Murray County 4-H members put countless hours of preparation into their 4-H projects and county fair exhibits. This annual event lets oth- ers see what they have learned, share their knowledge, and demonstrate their skills, members showcase leadership, citizenship, and a mul- titude of talents through complex displays, showing livestock, creating interesting exhibits, and showcasing experiences in 4-H.' A stroll through the 4-H Building Exhibit Hall unveils nearly 50 differ- ent project areas from photography to woodworking to flower gardening and so much more. There will be displays created to educate the public on environmental issues, veterinary science exploration, increased con- sumer awareness, and service proj- ects that improve our communities. 4-H members share creative talents through pictures, crafts and art work. While some 4-H members enjoy woodworking, others perfect their green thumbs through vegetable or flower gardening.
