    Announcements from Lily .....

    Decisions surrounding the Hubbard County fair are still being made by the Fair Board, however, UMN Extension 4-H in Hubbard County has decided to move all judging experiences to a virtual format. This decision was not made lightly, but we feel it is the best decision we can make in the interest of our members. We understand many are feeling a sense of loss and we feel this too, but know that we are committed to ensuring our young people have an opportunity to showcase the projects they have worked hard on and receive valuable feedback they can learn from. We will let you know as more information becomes available and plans are determined but we thank you for your continued patience, understanding, and support
