The Door County 4-H experienced some great success from its small contingent at the Wisconsin State Fair last week. The timing of the Door County Fair, which coincides with the state fair’s opening weekend, limits the number of animal exhibits making the trek from the area to West Allis. Carmen Jorns represented the county in the Champions Challenge in the Gymkhana event, which puts some of last year’s best horse riders in the state in the show ring. Door County 4-H Youth Development Educator Dawn Vandevoort says it is a huge accomplishment.
Vandevoort says last year’s Door County Fair exhibition winners had their projects displayed at the state fair with a quilt made by 4-H member Josie Kinnard earning a merit award.
