There were six Share the Fun and 26 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, Koronis Eager Beavers, Litchfield Satellites, and the Valley Victors.
