Lessons learned at Door County Fair extend to life

Behind every animal and exhibit, you will find at the Door County Fair in the coming days are youth developing skills they will take with them for the rest of their lives.  Door County Scrap Metal owner Hilary Heard certainly credits her time exhibiting at the fair for how she has grown as a business owner and a community member. Heard's relationship with the fair started as a Cloverbud, a project within 4-H designed for younger children in kindergarten, first, and second grades. Even though everyone gets a ribbon at that age, you still had to work on your interpersonal skills, and the lessons learned only grew from there.

You can click this link to hear how Heard's passion for the fair led her to giving back as an event sponsor.  Youth participants will head to the fairgrounds on Wednesday to have their projects judged in the exhibition. Those showing animals will have their projects evaluated during the opening days of the Door County Fair, which runs August 10th through the 14th at John Miles County Park in Sturgeon Bay.
