From Thurston Talk:
When it comes to teaching kids responsibility, economics, work ethic and self-confidence, there may be nothing better than animals. 4-H Clubs and Future Famers of America (FFA) are two organizations that work hard to support youth and animals, knowing the benefits for kids are long-term and significant. You can help support Thurston County youth in both organizations at the annual Youth Market Animal Sale that happens each year as part of the Thurston County Fair.
The Thurston County Youth Market Animal Sale happens July 30 at 6 p.m. in the Hicks Lake Barn at the Thurston County Fairgrounds. Both purchases of animals and the add-on donations are tax deductible. To register as a bidder, go to the Thurston County Youth Market Animal Sale website or in person at the sales office on the day of the sale.
