Today there are six clubs: Formoso Willing Workers, Jewell Gemstones, Mankato Eager Beavers, Southeast Coyotes and Whitemound Builders. In 1982 fair activities were held at three locations--the fair grounds, Na- tional Guard Armory and the Mankato High School football field. A proposal was made that year to lease land east of the high school for the purpose of moving the fair grounds. The plans did not develop and the fair grounds re- main. In the early years the county 4-H fair operated on donated funds from businesses and individuals. For three years the 4-H people and businesses sold fair booster tickets to help raise money and support the musical pro- gram, held during the fair. When the county fair association was formed, it was possible to receive county funds. Howevei', the funds proved inadequate, so donations were still needed. Today the fair association still plans the county fair. The fair theme and the fair T-shirt design are chosen through contests that are held every year. Highlights throughout the years 1938 Jewell County 4-H Club members proved their worth as calf feeders at the American Royal sales pavilion at Kan- sas City Stock Yards, when their calves were sold at a special auction which grossed the youthful feeders $3,000. Jewell County 4-H club members, 22 boys and three girls, were repre- sented with 34 calves. A total of 103 were entered. The Jewell County calves averaged 872 pounds and sold at an average of $10.10 per cwt. The calves were purchased January 15 under the direction of county agent, C.E. Bartlett. Marvin Eberhart, Jewell, fed out five calves. Beth Fearing, 17, Burr Oak, mem- ber of White Rock Hustlers, was awarded a blue ribbon for her three piece suit, exhibited in national com- petition at the 4-H congress in Chi- cago. Marian O'Neal, also a member of the Hustlers, was awarded the state championship for news writing. 1940 The Jewell County 4-H Club Achievement Days will be held in Man- kate August 30 and 31 with regular exhibits and a style show. A parade will be held Saturday afternoon. Float competition for clubs, costumes and pets will also be judged. Friday Man- kate businessmen will have a softball game against the 4-H club boys. Prizes Will be furnished by the. Mankato Chamber of Commerce. 1946 Lewis Topliff, 4-H Achievement is tops and won national 4-H honors in leadership contest. He will receive a trophy and $200 college scholarship. He is 21 times a county 4-H champion and an 11 year member. He is a mem- ber of Lovewell area White Rock Val- ley 4-H Club. 1955 Ponca wheat exhibited by Vaughn Hart, Randall Cheerful Chiefs 4-H Club, was judged Champion milling and baking wheat of the show. Ponca wheat exhibited by Terry Biery, Man- kate Eager Beavers 4-H Club, received a blue ribbon on both milling and bak- ing grain displayed. A total of 1,500 entries are expected in the various 4-H county fair divisions and events. The 4-H Club members and their families, who will be in Man- kate, will total 1,000 or more each day of the fair. 1969 The Jewell County Fair will be Aug. 6,7 and 8.
