A Fair Time

The sisters are members of the Jolly Workers 4-H Club.  Dalton Shanks of Newton helps his friends Chad and Colby Elrod clean up their stall. The boys are members of the Hominy Ridge 4-H Club.  Bernard Van Wyk of Sully, Chadwick Ver Ploeg of Pella and Dick “Junior” Ver Ploeg of Sully relax at a county fair picnic table. The Ver Ploeg brothers were charter members of the Lynn Grove Hustlers 4-H Club out of Lynnville in 1941. They recalled showing their hogs and beef at the Jasper County Fair throughout the ’40s.
