DSC_4992Grays Harbor County is a county in Western Washington that borders the Pacific Ocean. Elma, a small city in Grays Harbor County, is the location of the fairgrounds. Last night I went to the Grays Harbor County Fair. What I always gravitate to is the Agriculture Area where students from FFA (Future Farmers of America) and the 4-H Club (Head, Heart, Hands, and Health)are showing their animals. Both organizations are similar but whereas the FFA works directly with schools the 4-H Club is primarily an after-school association. It is here that I can have conversations with young people in their teens that I would never have anywhere else. They describe their work with passion, talk about their futures, and of course about the care of the animals they have raised.
