The 2010 Meeker County 4-H Share the Fun & Performing Arts Day was held Sunday afternoon, April 11, in the Little Theatre at the Litchfield High School. There were six Share the Fun and 19 Performing Arts acts. Share The Fun is a time for kids to share fun skits with their peers and adults while performing for an audience. The purposes of Share The Fun include: Building club rapport and unity, promoting 4-H, and providing recognition for the club. Many Meeker County 4-H'ers had a great opportunity to share their talents. Along with the 4-H Ambassadors, participants included members from the following clubs: Acton Buzzers, Danielson Hustlers, Dassel Lamplighters, Kimball Kruisers, Litchfield Satellites, and the Valley Victors.
Awards were as follows:
Most 4-H Spirit - Acton Buzzers
