Sew a pillow or pot holder, learn photography and prepare a photo to enter, make cookies and take home the recipe to prepare for your Fair entry, or paint a clay pot to enter in the “Farm Fun Planter Pots” division. This fun day camp is happening on Monday, June 24, from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm and is available to ages 6-12. Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Stop by the Fair Office to register or give us a call at 530-273-6217. Don’t miss out on the fun!
