1st Annual Sunshine Class Held at the Bluegrass Fair
Central Kentucky Ag Credit, Locust Trace FFA, and Lexington Lions Club hosted the Inaugural Sunshine Lamb Class at the Bluegrass Fair on Monday, June 14th. The class was designed for those under the age of twenty-two-years-old with special needs.
Three children participated in the event, ranging between ages two and eleven. This served as an opportunity to show a lamb. Sunshine Class participants were paired with experienced exhibitors. Collectively, the pair lapped the lamb show ring. Emotions of joy ran high amongst the audience; cheers of encouragement echoed throughout the Bluegrass Fair Grounds barn. Marissa Greer, the mother of a participant, was astonished by her son’s comfort when handling the lamb. “ I wasn’t sure how he would take to the lamb….. but he absolutely loved it!”
All participants were awarded a lamb-shaped trophy. Central Kentucky Ag Credit, Locust Trace FFA, and Lexington Lions Club were happy to partner and provide youth the opportunity to gain exposure to agriculture.
