Multi-generational 4-H families heading to fairs

Throughout Minnesota, there are multi-generational 4-H families. A recent Pioneer Press article profiles one of them, Dakota County’s Fox family, as they prepare for another year at the county fair.

For a special project this year, one of the granddaughters conducted videotaped interviews with her grandfather and others family members, who shared memories and the impact 4-H has had on their lives. “It was very fascinating, because I never really took this amount of time to talk with them, even my grandpa or my great-aunt and -uncles, so I definitely learned about them and how 4-H was then,” she said.
