Shelby Crocket, a 15-year participant in the Central Texas Youth Fair and a 10-year member of Bosque County 4-H, decided that since this is her last year to participate, she would showcase not only her sewing talents, but her multitude of winning ribbons, by designing and sewing a quilt.

Crockett explained, in a letter attached to the quilt, “I first participated in the pet show at the age of two, winning reserve champion – you can see the ribbon, it’s the second pink ribbon for the top.”

Crockett notes that she has shown goats for 10 years and has entered the Home Economics Show for 12 years – winning a multitude of awards over the years.

From the first entrée being delivered for judging early in the week, through the watermelon social, early morning breakfast and right through every show at the fair, the action and hard work never slowed down for the youths of Bosque County and the surround area.

Throughout the week, everything was judged from cakes to rabbits, and from goats to steers – and not be left out, the HE exhibits, agriculture machanics, and even a pet show on Saturday for the young ones.

The annual Cash Sale took over the arena on Saturday, lasting several hours and paying out to the youths for their hard work. No totals on the sale as of press time.

The Bosque County Go Texan Barbecue Cookoff was held at the Bosque Bottoms in Meridian on June 7 and 8, in conjunction with the Meridian Chamber of Commerce Chiggerfest Barbecue Cookoff. Seventeen cookers took part.

Winner of the brisket-only cookoff was Meridian’s 74-year-old Marquita Bateman. She and her Red Hatters crew will represent Bosque County at the 2014 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo's Go Texan Barbecue Cook off to be held in February 2014.

By having a Barbeque Team representing Bosque County at the HLS&R Cookoff, a Bosque County High School Senior will receive a four-year $18,000 scholarship in 2014.
