Solon celebrities and calves strut their stuff at county fair

IOWA CITY - Solon 4-H clubs were well represented in the third annual Celebrity Bucket Bottle Calf Costume event held Wednesday, July 26, at the Johnson County 4-H and FFA Fair. This is the third year of the event, a fundraiser for causes selected by the countywide 4-H Youth Council. Club teams recruit a local celebrity to walk with a “borrowed” calf in the show ring as the audience votes for their favorites with donations.
This year’s proceeds will go to help ranchers and families whose cattle, grasslands and barns were destroyed in the Kansas wildfires last March, the worst in the state’s history.
