Allen County 4H

Llama Lovers

History

Brief History

Allen County 4H Llama Lovers began in 1985, by Jane Wells and Steve Eikenberry with 13 charter 4H'ers.  The first year of the fair was held adjacent to the current fairgrounds on the Irene Bryon property. We started in tents!  The club has grown over the years and has had many of the members become very successful in the community and have continued as club leaders and volunteers.
