MORRIS COUNTY, NJ - This year's annual Morris County 4-H Fair is canceled, announced CJ SInko, President of the Morris County 4-H Board of Directors.
In a statement, Sinko said "As you may have already heard Rutgers University has decided, due to the COVID-19 situation, to restrict all in-person activities into the summer months.
As a member of the Rutgers Cooperative Extension, which governs all 4-H programs throughout the state falls and which falls under the directive of Rutgers University, all of our in-person programs have been suspended through Aug. 31.
Unfortunately, this means that we are not able to host our annual Morris County 4-H Fair in Chubb Park (in Chester Township) this summer.
The Morris County 4-H Association values your support and commitment that have made our Fair a success for so many years. We recognize the importance of the Fair, as a place for our 4-H members to showcase their work, build community connections, and serve as a fun, family event for our members, volunteers, and Morris County families.
Together with the 4-H program officials, who are collaborating with other 4-H county offices and the state, we are working on innovative ways to move many aspects of the Fair to a virtual platform this year.
Additionally, we continue to work on plans for in-person Morris County 4-H Fairs when possible in the future. Please stay tuned for more details.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. Our 4-Hers work hard and they deserve our full effort in making the best even better!
