Thank you to our incredible community, we were able to raise over $5,000 to go towards purchasing animals. This meant we were able to buy more hogs than ever before. In the end, we bought the Supreme Grand Champion Hog for $14/lb, as well as 3 other hogs.
Because of your help, we put over $6,700 towards some incredible children's college funds.
Earlier this year, 4H decided they would not be putting on the annual auction. This led to parents working with the Ingham County Fair Foundation to find a way to make it happen. The kids had worked too hard to not have the auction. When we arrived on Thursday we were shocked by the level of detail that went into keeping people safe.
The uncertainty didn’t keep other local businesses away. We saw Merindorf Meats, Darrells Market & Hardware, Graff Chevrolet Okemos, and more buying numerous animals. Make sure to thank them for their support next time you see them!
In our four years of attending the auction, this was the most unique and enjoyable. Thank you to everyone that made this happen. It’s incredible to see what a community with a common goal can accomplish.
Nobody is going to forget 2020.
