Heart of Texas Fair

If you were around the Boys Ranch or Waco campus last week, you probably heard about the 2009 Heart of Texas Fair. This year, youth entered projects in the fair through both 4H and FFA. From creating cakes, photos, fire-pits and toy boxes to showing hogs, steers, lambs and goats, our youth were excited to showcase their talents.

Here are a few photos from the show and information about how our youth placed. Feel free to leave comments (even if they are anonymous) and we will pass on your congratulations to our youth!
