Date Correction for Fair Board and Livestock Council:
Due to an oversight, last week's Friday 4-H Information displayed a previous version of the 4-H Calendar. The dates shown were incorrect, and have now been updated in this edition.
The Fair Board meeting will take place on November 10 at 6:30 PM in the CSU Extension Office. The Livestock Advisory Council meeting will take place on November 17 at 6:30 PM in the CSU Extension Office.
Thank you for your patience and apologies for any confusion.
