acilities to all 4-H club members, their friends, and leaders on

                        4-H Round-Up.
   The fine cooperation given by the board of Directors of the
lenwood Inter-County Fair helped make possible a very splendid
1939 4-H Round-Up which was held in connection with the Glenwood
ity Inter-County fair. The premium moneys won by the individual
embers was the big part of the fair. $ 527.00   which was paid
o 4-H club members who won money on 325 articles and animals
xhibited, was an important factor in the success of the fair, but
he fine cooperative spirit which club members and leaders showed
n making entries and caring for their exhibits was the real
uccess of this 4-H Round-Up.  The project work carried o-nTy our
lub members has a fine opportunity to be exhibited at the fair
nd each member has taken a great deal of pride in bringing his
est work before the public. This was truly a fine picture of
Club work on parade." The club exhibit building was remodeled
nd the front painted white with 4-H green. This work was done
y our local Agricultural Instructors who have participated freely
* the club program. Housing facilities for exhibits, especially
* the girls' departments were inadequate this year. It is
incerely hoped that arrangements can be made for more space this
oming year.
   The county fair is a fine opportunity for club members to
lace before the public the results of their years' work. It is
n obligation of supporters of 4-H club work to provide these rural
youngsters with ample space and facilities for exhibiting their
rojects.
