RENSSELAER CO., N.Y. — Rensselaer County 4-H held two successful Winter Fairs in December, one at Salem United Methodist Church and another at Tamarac High School. 45 youth brought their projects to be evaluated by 4-H Teen Evaluators, projects ranged from corn husk sunflowers to snowman hats and tin can luminaries. Participants were also able to create a variety of holiday themed crafts and complete community service projects while attending the fairs. Rensselaer County 4-H would like to thank all of those members and volunteers who helped with this year’s events, and we look forward to a successful 4-H year in 2017.
