  • 4-H Horticulture Rally Day is Aug. 3

    Casey County 4-H will have a Horticulture Rally Day on Wednesday, August 3 at the Casey County Extension education building.
    Our county fair was very early in the season making it very difficult to enter horticulture items in the fair. We will be having a Rally Day to encourage youth to enter produce and other horticulture items for the fair. The items will be judged and the class champion will be given the opportunity to go to the state fair with their entries.
