The Cass County Extension Homemakers invite you to participate in events that are open to anyone during the Cass County 4-H Fair this year.

First of all, the Open Class Home and Family Arts Exhibit will receive entries on Saturday, July 9 from 8am-10am at the 4-H Community Center for $1 per entry. There are several categories of baked goods with a special award for Fancy Yeast Products this year. Other divisions include food preservation, crafts and hobbies, quilts, and flowers and garden. The items must be made by the person exhibiting in the last 3 years and never before exhibited in this event. For more details on the categories and rules, contact the Extension office at 574-753-7750.

The other event is the Cookie Bake-a-rama on Monday, July 11. Anyone is welcome to participate, even 4-H’ers. An entry consists of a plate of 6 cookies of the same type, plus the recipe. Bring the cookies on a disposable plate in a zipper-type plastic bag between 1:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. There is a $2 fee per entry (maximum of $5) and cash prizes will be awarded for the top 3 winners.

We hope you will share your talents at the Cass County 4-H Fair this year!
