Youngsters prepare animals for show at fair
Madeline Johnson, 13, of Portal, brushes down her pigs before a showing at the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair Tuesday.
For many young people, “fair week” means rides, food and fun, but for some, it also means work, prizes and learning. Each year, the Statesboro Kiwanis Club gives a number of area 4-H and FFA students a lamb, pig or goat to raise as a project and show at the Kiwanis Ogeechee Fair, said club member and livestock barn manager Debra Pease. The commitment these young folk make is more than just a fun school project.
