Week 8 in Region 6

Here is our highlight reel from our busy week!

Monona County Fair

The Monona Fair was a great first experience for the Rising Stars to learn the behind the scenes work that goes behind fairs. We learned how to do livestock weigh-ins, result entries, planning barn charts, and so much more! It was a hot and humid week, but everyone in the community stepped up to help each other out. Activities that happened at the Monona County Fair include: livestock shows, dog shows, static shows, teen night, tractor pull, and interviews! Scroll through the photos below to see some of the fun!

PoP Club

The kids this week in PoP Club got to a scavenger hunt and a craft making insects and flowers! At the farmer’s markets there are normally lots of adults, kids, and dogs….but this week we saw a bottle goat wearing a tutu!

Saturday was the long-awaited Bike and Bite event! The rising star interns as well as Madi and lots of others have helped to set up this bike event with the Sioux City Farmers Market. We had over 50 people come out and ride around Sioux City, stopping at different locations to try all the local flavors the vendors had to offer. We even got to bring the blender bike out to make fruit smoothies to promote local foods and healthy eating! It was a super busy week for the Region 6 interns but full of lots of fun and tons of new experiences!
