Elkhart County 4-H fair wraps up


The Elkhart County 4-H Fair wrapped up Saturday and organizers say it was a huge success!  This year the fair had record attendance.  And a record auction that brought in over one million dollars.

They also started a new program called Fair Cares.  The goal was to collect 250 thousand pounds of food for Church Community Services.  They brought in about 50 thousand but are still happy with those numbers.  "We didn't know what to expect but it's been pretty consistent all week and that's always encouraging to see," said Fair Board Treasurer Brent Carrick.

Organizers say they'll probably do the Fair Cares program again next year.
