County JrFak This Week-End McHenry County's 21st annual fair provides a dramatic setting for the competitive evaluation of the work of 1,227 4-H boys and gu-ls stalling Thursday July 31. Bui thi3 1969 McHenry County Fair is far more than a 4-H Show¬ case—though happily that is one of its finest assets. The climax to the work, worry and effort of tiiese young people takes place before the critical eye of judges as these youth¬ ful exhibitors learn just how they rate in comparison with the efforts of their peers. ."'Learning by doing" be(i*>m«s more than a slogan! In addition, many of the 4-H boys and girls will coilnpete for $10,198.25 offered in prize money through open class at the fair. Mce open class money than a year ago in swine, poultry and r-lothing boosts the total to a level higher than the amount offered a year ago. This year's fair opens July 31 and coninues through Au¬ gust 3. Two rodeo shows on August 2 — 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. — will be one of the features. So will crowning the 4-U King and Queen on 4 H night on Friday, August 1. On Thursday/night. July 31, the m/DSti-closely oShtesied Miiss Mc¬ Henry County Pageant in the 21 pi-esented at the fair takes place before the grandstand audience. This year's field is "outstanding" as one newspaperman of considerable experience exclaimed following the preliminary judging, July 10. One big attraction ~ and sure to add to the pleasure of persons attending is the new Stock Pa- viaon. This 70-foot building has just been erected and it will serve as the central poin for dairy and beef judging. The 4-H Auction on Sunday after¬ noon — annually a major attrac¬ tion - will be held in this bag, comfortable building this year, too. "Uiis will attract bidders and make the auction of steers, barrows and sheep more enjoyable for all! Hard v;ork by 4-H members, fair board members and other volunteer works assures a clean, neat fair- srtunds foi visitors. They've trim¬ med weed, painted inside buildings nnt; brightened areas with flowers. A change in the entrance on the east side will be required with the construction of the Stock Pavilion building. Members of the Grange will be at the gates taking tickets and will offer guidance on parking and how to enter the grounds most efficiently. One special interest exhibit among the many educational or entertain¬ ing ones will be the one featuring Judy Rich, McHenry County Dairy Princess. This will be the booth sponsored by the McHenry County Dairy Promotion Council and the District No. 6 Pure Milk Associa¬ tion. In addition to providing frequent demonstrations of a tasty milk punch (with samples for specta- torr). the personnel at the booth will offer taste treats of cheddar cheese. In addition, while it lasts, this Ched¬ dar cheese will be sold at cost to fair visitors for their enjoyment at home. One other major event finds the Talent CcMitest of cotinty young people on Sunday evening. August 3. The best of local entertainment has been determined through pre¬ liminary evaluation before Judges last weekend.
