Izabel Horn: Routt County Fair starts
August 10, 2013
It's that time of year again. The 99th annual Routt County Fair is coming up soon. The 4-H and FFA members would like to invite everyone to come out and see what is happening at the fairgrounds. There are plenty of horse and livestock shows and events going on each day for everyone to enjoy. We also would like to invite businesses and any families that would like to purchase a livestock animal at the end of the week to come out to the sale on Saturday afternoon. The barbecue starts at 3:30 p.m., and the sale starts at 5:30 p.m.
Routt County 4-H is having a small booth up during the week about fire safety. This past summer, a large fire went through El Paso County — the Black Forest Fire. We have talked to their 4-H county agent, and they have said that many members have lost a lot of their animal show equipment because of the fire. At this booth, we will have a donation jar up if anyone would like to help us raise funds to send to them to start recovering and rebuilding their equipment needs. We would like to thank the Routt County Emergency Manager's Office for assisting us with this project with fliers, brochures and display equipment.
To find a fair schedule and to get daily updates of what is going on, like us on Facebook at Colorado State University Extension, Routt County and Soroco FFA. Also follow us on Twitter @CSURouttCounty and @SorocoFFA. Hope to see you around the fair.
