COLUMBIA CITY â Whitley Countyâs 4-H Fair came to an end with the annual auction on Thursday.
Fair officials have estimated an auction total of $368,668, but anticipate that number will increase as final numbers are tallied.
The auction featured animals from 4-Hers with bidders who not only look to take home quality animals, but also view the auction as a chance to support the 4-H program.
âWhat a lot of people donât realize is that so much of the money helps 4-Hers,â said Fair Board President Cathy Heritier. âThese kids use that money for their future projects as well as money for college.â
