The State 4-H Horse Show will be held on July 15 at the Tolland County Extension Center in the Rockville section of Vernon.
State Baking Contests
Three baking contests held at your local member Fairs, allow the first place winner of each to advance to the state contest. The 2017 contests are:
- Adult Baking: Cinnamon Swirl Bread recipe
- Junior Baking: Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies recipe
- Two Crusted Apple Pie using your own recipe
😸 Of particular note this year is that the top crust for the apple pie must not be a lattice top and that the pie dish measures 9 inches across at the top inside of the dish.
