    Fair canceled, 4-H showcases still planned
    As many of you have heard, the Pope County fair board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Pope County Fair due to the COVID-19 health pandemic. 4-H supports this decision and is committed to offering an alternative for Pope County youth to showcase their learning and achievements.
