REMINDERS:

  • Scale head is at the Fairgrounds . We need to keep better track of the keys and who is using the scale, so here is how to get keys.
    1. We have two lock boxes attached to the milk can by our front office door.
    2. One is labeled A the other is B. You will need to text Lacey (970-819-0102) or Aleigh (970-846-3834) to request the code.
    3. DO NOT SHARE THE CODE!!! We need to be able to track who has used the scale and when.
    4. Once you have weighed your animals, return the key ASAP!!! Other families need to weigh also.
    5. If your animals seem sick in ANYWAY, please do not take them to the scales unless Lanny has checked them out. We do not want to spread any illnesses!
  • I mailed out Council reminders!!! Please check them and make sure you are aware of what you must complete to be able to compete and show at Fair.
  • We are selling cookbooks as a fundraiser. I am asking each kid who sells cookbooks to try and sell 5.
  • We are also selling truck raffle tickets. I am asking each kid who sells them to try and sell 10.
