This new combined 4-H show is scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday, July 7 at Dorrisville Baptist Church, 1300 Feazel St., in Harrisburg. We ask that clubs observe the following check-in schedule:

8:45 a.m. -- Clover Explorers and Pleasant Valley Go-Getters

9 a.m. -- Country Clovers, Farmin' Friends, and H2

9:15 a.m. -- Lads & Lassies and Pioneers

Projects will be on display for members, volunteers and the public to view following judging, ribbon presentations, and pictures.

The University of Illinois Extension office in Harrisburg will be closed on Wednesday, July 4, 2018 in observance of Independence Day. The staff at University of Illinois Extension and Saline County 4-H wish you and your families a wonderful, safe, and Happy 4th of July!
