Sending positive vibes to our 10 Loudoun 4-Hers that are headed down to compete in the State Fair livestock shows! πŸ–πŸπŸ‘πŸ‚πŸ€πŸŽ‘

Safe travels to all of our Virginia Youth Livestock families as they make last minute preparations for the 2022 Sate Fair of Virginia - 360 amazing kids, too many parents and supporters to count, nearly 1200 head of livestock, and a team of Agents, Ag Teachers, and volunteers that are second to none!

As we gather for our biggest event of the year - choose kindness, find grace, give the gift of patience, make a new friend, and stop to help someone who needs your expertise or knowledge. You may be competitors for these few days, but you can be friends for a lifetime.

See everyone soon!
