Mercer County 4-H Roundup: July 30-August 5

Posted: July 6, 2017

The 2017 Mercer County 4-H Roundup will be held July 30 - August 5 at the Mercer 4-H Park located on Route 19 in Mercer. All shows and events are free to the public and open to all ages.

These shows are the final step for 4-H members as they complete their projects and a busy year. 4-H youth work very hard all year and Roundup is their time to SHINE. So come on out and support our 4-H’ers. Everyone is welcome to attend the Mercer County 4-H Roundup. Remember, it doesn’t cost anything to just have fun, look around and watch “The Youth of Today Becoming the Leaders of Tomorrow!”
