Starke County 4-H Fair cancelled
The Starke County 4-H Fair has been cancelled and there will not be a virtual fair.
The decision was made due to the governor's requirements for opening an in-person event. In addition, Purdue gave counties a six-page document of guidelines that must be met to host an event in person.
The guidelines included:
- Every employee, volunteer, and 4-Her required to wear a mask while on the fairgrounds
- Keeping records of everyone who attends for contact tracing purposes
- Frequent sanitizing
- Maintaining the CDC requirement of a 6-foot distance between each person while limiting the amount of people in order to maintain that social distance
- No livestock on the fairgrounds overnight
Fair officials are asking members to complete their books to finish the year. There will be more information in the future on when books will be due.
