4-H Sale of Champions set for July 22


PRINCETON — The 4-H Sale of Champions Committee will sponsor the annual Bob Talbot Memorial 4-H Sale of Champions at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, July 22, at the sale barn during the Bureau County 4-H Fair held at the Bureau County Fairgrounds in Princeton.

At the discretion of the youth and the winning bidder, the auctioned off animal may then be returned to the youth owner for completion of the show season, returned to the youth or may be taken possession of immediately after the auction by the highest bidder.
