“Our fair will run from Saturday, July 13th until Sunday, July 21st,” said Struchtemeyer. “We kick off on the 13th with our public speaking demonstrations out at our fairgrounds. At 5:30 at the shooting sports range, we have the cowboy shoot-out. It’s a new thing for our county so it is a neat thing to see. At 6:00 on Monday we will have our fashion show.”

Exhibits and livestock shows will be going on all week at the fairgrounds in Marshall.

“It’s a great opportunity for the community to come out and see what 4-H and FFA is all about,” added Struchtemeyer. “The kids work hard all year and this is an opportunity to show what they have worked so hard for all year. We encourage everyone to come out and see what is going on with the youth this year and of course to go the livestock shows, lawn mower races, and other events.
