Cogitation 30 Saturday 28 July 2018 We got a mini-taste of farming, and all things agriculturally-related, at the weeklong Elkhart County 4-H Fair,
Free admission on Tuesday for seniors was one incentive to go. The main reason for going to the fair, though, was to see the rabbits Silas Stutzman, a Rabbit Club member, had entered. Silas and his two siblings and their parents are part of our small group at church.
Of course, you can’t go to the fair and not succumb to some of the tantalizing food fare on offer, do a wander about the 4-H entries, walk through the commercial exhibits (without needing anything but still picking up some licorice), listen to entertainment (senior talent competition on Tuesday), watch people, or opt for a wide choice of related activities.
We did not stay for the evening grandstand entertainment. A half day proved plenty enough to fill our plate.
Stay calm and groom your hobby horse.
