4-H and FFA members from across the state recently had the opportunity to show in the State Junior Horse Show held at the Illinois State Fairgrounds in Springfield. The weeklong show draws a large number of exhibitors and offers a wide variety of classes. Nine 4-H members from Bond and Clinton County 4-H participated this summer. Hailey Bohn, John Bohn, Ashley Manning, Autumn Payne, Grace Sperandio, and Jacob Sperandio represented Bond County. Joely Craver, Abby Litteken, Lukas Raynor, and Emma Winkeler represented Clinton County. They had a wonderful week and brought home more than 50 ribbons all together.
