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
