[August 03, 2019]  Logan County 4-H Sheep Superintendent John Coers, along with Logan County 4-H members, gathered with family and friends at the sheep barn for the 2019 Fair Sheep Show on Thursday morning.

John asked for a round of applause, several times, for the youngsters showing sheep saying, “These kids are the reason I get up in the morning.” It was obvious that he was very proud of each 4-H member. Coers and his wife, Annie, who assists as the recorder, were inducted into the Illinois 4-H Foundation 2018 Hall of Fame for their exemplary service to the Illinois 4-H program. They have been volunteering with Logan County 4-H for over 15 years.

Logan County 4-H members thanked Sheep Superintendent John Coers for his many years of dedication to the competition.

After the competition the members of 4-H gathered in the center of the sheep barn to present Coers with a thank you gift for his service; a plaque reading, “The BEST memories are made on the Farm.”

The afternoon ended with the First Annual Sheep Costume Contest. Contestants included winners, Brantley Conrady, as Yankee Doodle Dandy; and his mom, Janna, as the Statue of Liberty, with sheep; Star and Yosemite Sam with sheep, Bertha.

Youngsters in the competition had slogans, “Eat more Chikin” and “Surfin’ in the Ewe S. A.” All those who participated had a great time and encouraged more to join them next year.
