    4-H'ers?

    Since the State Fair started today, it got me thinking - what percentage of CF'ers were in 4-H or FFA? If so - what club?

    I was (begrudgingly) in the whole time. Southside Pioneers of Boone County.

    Who else?

    While I was only in 4-H, both my brothers were huge into FFA. Down in Lamoni, IA.

    FFA here. Loved it, still do. Some of my closest friends are people who live all over the country and we met on various trips (WLC, National Convention, camps, contests, etc.).

    Re: 4-H'ers?

    I was pretty heavily involved in both and was fortunate to be in great clubs/chapters. My 4-H club had a pretty dorky name though...Country Cousins.

    I was in "Pilot's Peppy Pals and Eagles" at one point before we moved, so I feel your pain...

    I showed sheep one year, my dog one year, but mostly did the "inside stuff" - lots of photography, clothing, etc. You'd figure that I would have learned how to cook, but you'd be wrong.

    Re: 4-H'ers?

    I was a 4-Her in the Monroe Successful Farmers of Butler County. My dad was also on the county fair board so I spent all day every day at the county fair. Never did any livestock but have lots of blue ribbons for cookies and photography.
    I was a finalist in the Bill Riley State Fair competition when I was in 6th grade. Had I not thought girls were gross, I would have taken full advantage of spending quite a bit of time around the state fair queen.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: 4-H'ers?

    I was in 4-H for about two years, but did virtually nothing other than go to the monthly meetings, where we sat and did virtually nothing. We usually had pizza, so I guess that was cool.

    Re: 4-H'ers?

    Boone Progressors baby!! (Booneville that is) The most suburban 4-H crew you would ever come across.

    (We were from WDM, Clive, Waukee) to be fair my parents families are from the farm and made me join. Enjoyed it though, got a blue ribbon for photography at the State fair too!

    Orthel Jolly Workers up in Hancock county in 4H. Showed hogs and cattle and built a go-cart that came one place from heading to the state fair. Then FFA where we showed hogs and cattle as well. Lots of fun

    I was a Palestine Peppy Pusher in Story County. If your club didn't have some bizarre name, I don't think you really got the full 4-H experience.
