Let's Go: New London County 4-H hosts annual expo
The New London County 4-H is hosting its annual exposition July 26-28 at the North Stonington Fairgrounds. Run almost entirely by youth members, the weekend will include exhibits and activities for all ages, with a variety of contests featuring projects and submissions by 4-H members in community, aftershool and science clubs.
Nonmembers ages 7-19 can also enter the open pet fair and the Sunday robotics competition, in which participants create machines to clean up a simulated landfill.
Admission to the expo is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and free for children ages 12 and younger and 4-H members. Discounts are also available for three-day passes. For more information and a complete list of events, visit 4-h.uconn.edu. The North Stonington Fairgrounds are located at 23 Wyassup Road.
