2020 4-H Pink Party!

For many years, Buffalo County 4-H sponsored the Pink Party following the 4-H Awards Program at the Buffalo County Fair. The Pink Party was to recognize all the 4-H members who received a pink ribbon (fourth place) on a 4-H exhibit. It was an opportunity to acknowledge all the hard work youth put into their 4-H projects throughout the year and to applaud effort and learning all in once place. The Pink Party had all the fixings for a great pink celebration including cake with pink frosting, strawberry ice cream and wafers and pink lemonade.

Well, in 2020 we’re bringing back the Pink Party!
