The 2013 Meeker County 4-H Share the Fun & Performing Arts Day was held Sunday afternoon, Feb. 24, in the Bernie Aaker Auditorium at the Family Services Center in Litchfield. 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.
