KNOWLESVILLE – Rudolph and his fellow reindeer are made from peanuts and pipe cleaners. They form a portion of an entry by 11-year old Brandi Stephens on display at the 2015 4-H Holiday Faire on Saturday at the 4-H Fairgrounds.

Orleans County 4-H’ers, their families, friends and community members gathered at the Trolley Building for the annual Holiday Faire.

The event showcases 4-H projects with a holiday theme. Club tables featured activities of various 4-H clubs and offered craft projects for those attending.

This entry – a sock snowman – was made by 8-year old Layne Walker. The snowman will be used as a holiday centerpiece.

The annual 4-H Holiday Faire brought together community members on Saturday afternoon at the Trolley Building on the 4-H Fairgrounds.

The “Jolly Ol’ Elf” – Santa Claus – made an appearance and checked out 4-H Club tables in addition to taking down holiday wishes from youngsters in attendance.

Five-year old Ella Wilson and her sister, two-year old Cora Wilson of Holley, check out a bunny at the Orleans County 4-H Rabbit Raisers table.

Lily Brigham, age 6, and Sawyer Brigham, age 8, of Albion, show off the snowman hat ornaments they made at the Orleans County 4-H Paw Praisers Club table.

No, it’s not one of Santa’s Reindeer, it’s Domino the Llama, owned by Orleans County 4-H Leader Barb Kurzowski. Domino sports a festive holiday headband at the annual 4-H Holiday Faire.
