No 4-H at Bangor State Fair this year. Here is the new plan
Bangor State Fair has reduced some events this year, and 4-H is one of the programs that is affected. Instead, the 4H goat, market lamb, and market beef had to go elsewhere to display their animals.
The 4-H Sheep representative for Penobscot County is Donna Gangitano. She spoke of this fact:
“It’s sad for the children. They will miss the camaraderie with their 4-H mates and all the good experience of being with their pet for days on end.
Tonight at 6pm, the 4H Market Lamb Show will be held at the Casa Cattle Company, 141 Nokomis Road in Corinna.
Penobscot Livestock 4-H Showdown and sale will take place tomorrow at Casa Cattle Company, the Market Steer exhibit will take place on Saturday at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a barbecue lunch.
The sale will start at 2 p.m. with steers from the market and lambs.
You can attend in person, but you can also bid over the phone, if you have made arrangements in advance by calling 249-2191
The processors will be there to take the animals for the buyers.
The goats will be at Cumberland Fairgrounds.
Help the young people who have invested time, money and energy in these 4H projects. In Donna’s Penobscot County group, there are 11 children between the ages of 9 and 18 with sheep. And for them, it’s a mini business with a profit and loss column. And for most of them, if there is indeed money after spending, it is used to buy an animal for the next year. Hats off to the 4-H kids involved in making the most of things in another upset year. Remember that adversity builds character.
