GREENVILLE—On behalf of the Darke County Jr Fair Sheep department, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all our past supporters for your support of this program over the years.
Without this support, we would not have been able to help numerous sheep exhibitors who have continued on with their education like we have. Over the years, many of these exhibitors have come back to help out others in the sheep barn because they wanted to give back to help others like they were helped.
This year we anticipate having somewhere between five to 10 applicants. They all have participated in the sheep barn for numerous years. On Tuesday, August 23, during the lamb sale, we will have a time for people to pledge their donations to the Lamb Scholarship fund. We start with auctioning off a lamb or another item as a whole and then taking donations in different increments.
If you have any questions or would like to donate and cannot make it to the sale, you can contact Vickie Willcox at 937-423-2700 or by contacting the sale office at the fairgrounds.
