that could host our annual fair.
Our ﬁrst fair in 2011 was dusty, we didn’t have any electric available to campers, there
were no ﬂush toilets and still exhibits were under a tent. Fast forward to today, we have
hosted more than 100 weddings and community events in the Ash Building, and dozens
of horse shows in our beautiful arenas. Most importantly, we have held six successful
fairs. Participation by 4hers has nearly doubled. We built for expansion, but in many
areas we are busting at the seams.
This year we are especially focused on adding a bathroom and bath house to the
campground. We are close to reaching our fundraising goals thanks to generous community
members, 4-H Clubs, and 4-H families. Also generous with their support was the
Greenville Area Community Foundation, Michigan Department of Agriculture and the
Chemical Bank Foundation. We look forward to 2018 when the new bath house will be
available for fair week.
Keeping up with maintenance at the new grounds can be tricky for a 100 percent volunteer
organization. This year the fair board challenged all of our participating 4-Hers and
their families to put in at least two hours mowing, weeding, painting, picking-up trash
and what not at the grounds.
The 4-H Clubs and 4-H members have come through with ﬂying colors. Nearly 95 percent
have already participated this year. Their work is greatly appreciated and we thank them.
Thank you to all who helped with the fundraising, made donations, sponsored events
and ribbons and trophies.
The fair would not survive without the support of our 4-H families and the community.
Thank you to everyone who helped us to be successful.
See you at the fair.
We are very happy to announce this years presenting fair sponsor Montcalm Community College in conjunction with Michigan State University's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

As a result there is no doubt that we will be able to do even more to make this year's fair a memorable experience. Please visit our presenting sponsors at the links below:

This year’s association meeting will be taking place on Thursday October 19th be sure to mark your calendar. The evening will start out at 6:00pm with our annual potluck dinner, you’re encouraged to bring a dish to pass. After that the meeting will be starting promptly at 7:00pm. In addition we are trying to boost our association, we need more members, so if you know anyone who may be interested in becoming a member please refer them here.
ShoWorks online registration is now officially open! This year, each exhibitor will need to enroll all their fair entries online. This is very similar to the old triplicate forms many of you remember. All animals must be enrolled in their classes, along with the record books and showmanship classes. All animal entries will be checked against the registration forms. The registration forms that were submitted for animals do not enroll exhibitors in fair. All Still Exhibits, Performing Arts and Demonstration entries will also need to be entered. The deadline for fair entries is June 6. We have computers available at the office for those who do not have access to one at home. We may be able to arrange to meet with a club to assist with entries if needed.
In order to register just click the photo-link below!
