Most of today's notices are reminders of items mentioned last week. However there are a few important "heads-up" tid-bits of information included. I encourage you to take the time to read carefully so you don't miss something that may concern you or your club. 

We look forward to seeing many of you at either the Lincoln County Fair and/or the Wheat Land Communities Fair.
