The theme for this year was “There’s magic in the air at the Wayne County Fair.” The group decorated the float anddressed up as magicians and had booths with signs for “Card Tricks,” “Rabbit out of Hat” and “Crystal Ball.”

The Farm Friends volunteered at the 4-H dairy booth at the Wayne County Fair. The money from the dairy both goes to 4-H scholarships. Working in the dairy booth is considered fun and members get a free ice cream when the shift is completed.
