CHESTER This was a special year for the Morris County 4-H Club because it marked its 100th year of educating the county's young people. The theme for the year is "Bringing Out the Power of Youth."
 The annual 4-H Fair was also special because it was chock-full of all kinds of activities for the young and young-at-heart like model rocket launching, model airplane demonstrations, a talent show, musical entertainment, fly tying demonstration, hay rides, pony rides, sand art, and of course, you just couldn't forget the chicken barbeque,

cotton candy and amusement park rides!
 Morris County 4-H provides informal educational experiences for all county youth from 1st grade to one year past high school. Young people in grades 4 to 13 make up the traditional 4-H program in which

members participate in projects such as gardening, animal care and management, woodworking, photography, clothing and leadership development just to name a few. Children in grades 1 to 3 are enrolled in "prep" clubs that introduce them to the many 4-H projects and activities available.

 There was a little extra sparkle added to end this year's talent show as Gov. James McGreevey (D-NJ) passed out the ribbons to the first, second and third place winners.         This writer couldn't help but revel in her children's enjoyment of this much-anticipated event, because her little guy had been talking about seeing the animals again since last year's fair. "Mommy, can we go to the fair next time" was his favorite line as he rambled off the names of all the animals he knew he would see. And to think, there are more county fairs on the schedule!
