Letter to the Editor: Don't tear down the 4-H county fair building

The county fair building holds memories for 4-H youth


The plan to tear down the 4-H county fair building because there is a hole in the roof and a beam is beginning to rot is like cutting off your head because you have a toothache. A new roof should be a minor problem in today's world.

Tearing down the building just to put up a new shiny one on the same foundation would rip the heart and memories of all the 4-H young people who learned how to work with all kinds of people in all kinds of conditions in that building.

Learning how to deal with life is learned in 4-H activities.

These hands-on lessons become the background of America.

Please reconsider your plan. Fix the roof!


Leo and Susan Bye-Elyea,


Friends of 4-H
