Leftover items

There were some items leftover from the Hays County Youth Livestock Show  a few weeks ago.

If your child participated in the Home skills contest and forgot to pick up their exhibit (art, photography, crafts), it's at the Extension Office.

Also each Home skills participant should have received an envelope at checkout that contained ribbons and money they received for their project. If you didn't pick up your envelope, these are at the Extension office as well.
