Most of us were disappointed, yet understanding, about the need to cancel the traditional local summer fairs for the safety of the community.
Luckily, 4-H’ers were still able to participate in their programs, with restrictions put in place for social distancing and judging remotely.
LaGrange County REMC traditionally volunteers to help judge local 4-H Electric projects for LaGrange and Noble counties, and it was the same this year, with the addition of DeKalb County 4-H activities. Judging was also completed with the help of Noble REMC.
For judging, first-year 4-H members built circuit boards; second-year members made a “shake” flashlight; third-year members created a trouble light or extension cord; and fourth-year and advanced 4-H’ers selected their own project.
Congratulations to all participants!
Here is the list of local winners:

Be on the lookout!
LaGrange County REMC is committed to the community and the success of its youth!
As we’ve done for many years, the REMC will offset the cost of 4-H enrollment in 2021 for members of the cooperative. Members can request a $15 bill credit voucher from the Purdue Extension office when they sign their children up to participate.
