Record books which were at State Fair are entered as well as all livestock record books.

Fair Thank You Notes
ALL 4-H members are reminded, it is important to send a THANK YOU, to Award (trophy or useful gift) Sponsors and Livestock Buyers who support 4-H.  
 
All youth receiving any award and/or selling a market animal MUST show your stamped, addressed, ready-to-mail thank you note OR a copy of the note if it has already been mailed before receiving premium money.  Contact information for all awards is included on a label with the award.
 
Premium money will be available at the Extension Office from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning Tuesday, August 22 until Friday, September 29.  If this was your first year in 4-H, you may not be aware that there is premium money available for you at the Extension Office until Sept 29.  Bring a copy of any thank you notes you have written (for trophies and to buyers of animals) and you can receive this money.  It is given based on the ribbons that you received for your project. Don't miss out.  Money is returned each year, because youth do not stop by to get it.
 
Thank you notes to sponsors and buyers are important, as we would not be able to have such a successful fair without their support!

Lost and Found
We have a couple items left from the 2017 Morgan County Fair, one of which is a wallet (please describe and we will return it to its owner). There is a Weldon Valley hoodie and a blue umbrella.
