Log Cabin Restoration Update:
The 4-H Log Cabin Committee along with other 4-H volunteers have been busy raising funds to pay for the restoration of the 4-H Park Log Cabin located at the north side of the park.
Several logs were replaced along with new flooring, cedar shake roof, concrete footers and floor, wood floor, improved windows and new doors, and electric. You will want to check it out at this years 4-H Fair!
The restoration was completed in early July, just in time for the 2018 4-H Fair. Here is some of the fair events scheduled including: Danny Russel who portrays Abe Lincoln, a Dulcimer music group and staff from the local Ouabache State Park speaking about topics, such as the Fire Tower, Civilian Conservation Core, and Bison.
Special thanks to Studabaker Specialty Woodworks and the volunteers who also helped!
Plans are also underway to have a Haunted Cabin at Halloween and a Christmas at the Cabin event in 2018. Watch for more details as they are finalized. Donations for the cabin restoration are still being accepted.

The present scales used to weigh Dairy Feeders, Dairy Beef and Beef were purchased originally in the 1960s. It is becoming a challenge to get the scale properly balanced in order to get the correct weight. With your help, we could purchase a new scale and make weigh in days so much smoother.
