2017 Whitley County 4-H Fair Results
Many homeowners love maple trees because they are some of the best shade trees for the home landscape. Maples produce seeds that fall like tiny helicopters from the tree. As loved as these trees are, people become alarmed when the leaves on these maple trees have large black spots that look like they've been splattered with tar.
80 spaces of crafts, jewelry, wood crafts, lotions, candy, baked items and more. Also many beautiful quilts will be displayed in the west room at the 4-H Center.
