The PEI 4-H Rural Youth Fair, a much-loved Island tradition, will be returning to the Dundas Exhibition Grounds again this year on Saturday, September 19. Guests of all ages are welcome to join the fun as the achievements of PEI 4-H members from across the Island are celebrated in this busy one-day event. “4-H has almost a century of history on PEI,” explains Administrative Director Kelly Mullaly. “We believe this is because there is still a great interest and value in creating positive opportunities for young people to take chances and learn new skills, with the support and guidance of adult members from their own community. It’s the essence of our ‘Learn To Do By Doing’ motto and it includes offering projects to our members (ages 6-21) in subjects which range from agriculture, home economics and life skills, to science and technology.” (read more)
