County fair a culmination of kids’ ag work

This year’s pet show, a perennially popular event at the annual Limestone County Fair, is scheduled for Thursday, March 26, at 6 p.m. Children who want to participate, like Rowdy Crabb, of Groesbeck, then 5, shown here with his dog King, at the 2014 fair, need to show up early to sign up.
Limestone County youth have been working for weeks, months and even a year in some cases, on their county fair projects, and the big reveal is Wednesday through Saturday, March 25-28. That’s when the students’ work will be showcased to see how it stacks up against not only each others’ efforts but against the standard of excellence that the FFA, 4-H, ag teachers and Limestone County Fair Association have established for the different activities.
