CANFIELD, Ohio — The 4-H clubs of Columbiana County are ready for fair time and it’s just around the corner. Each of the Rough Rider 4-H members have projects of their own, whether it is archery, livestock, photography, etc. All of the members must do a demonstration of the safety and or care of their project. Each member has something unique and interesting to share about their projects. This can give them courage to stand in front of audiences and have experience for the future.
Also, the club is having a camping weekend the week after the Columbiana County Fair. The club project this year is archery. The last meeting before fair was held July 12.
