(LaPorte) - A summer tradition for over a thousand area 4-Hers is going to be drastically different this year. LaPorte County Purdue Extension leaders have announced their plans for conducting a greatly modified 4-H exhibition.
4-H projects will be exhibited, but not at the county fair. According to a letter sent out to 4-H members late last week, projects will be shown either online or at a public viewing in the fall.
The letter stated that 60% of 4-H volunteers are considered “at-risk,” suggesting a lack of man-power may have contributed to the decision.
Further details will be released to 4-H members as alternate plans come together.
