Reflections on 4-H and the fair

Carson grew up in 4-H and, among other activities, raised pigs. Attending the Redwood Empire fair in Ukiah this past weekend made us here at Carson and Bees reflect on the importance of 4-H, FFA, and other programs for children and young adults. It also brought home how critical a community is for instilling values and a good work ethic among those kids.

This blog post could have been written about our local fair, which makes my heart swell with pride and my eyes fill with tears (being the resident sap). It’s worth a read if, like us, you value these programs and the community’s support for them: “On Sunday my son sold his pig.”
