The Lincoln County Fair has come and gone, and yet right behind the Exhibit Hall, stands a new structure. If any of you had the chance to mosey over, you would have read above the door, Eagle Scout Project Braxton Tingey Sept. 2014-March 2015.

The Lincoln County 4-H Council was in need of a storage facility, and Braxton Tingey was in need of a project for completion of an Eagle Scout Award requirement. Between a generous donation of concrete from Jim & Uvada Wilkin, donations for the structure and a lot of very hard work from not only Braxton, and other scout members, but also dad Cody, Grandpa Art, Uncle Matt and cousin Jordan, this building was completed in time for the fair. Keep in mind, this young man completed this project while also attending school and heavily involved with after school sporting events.

On Friday, July 24, 4-H President Tammy Ahlstrom, along with council members Linda Beard, Susan Hansen, (Lynn Wood & Tamara Peterson were absent) Hayley Gloeckner and family members, presented Braxton with a plaque of gratitude for the completion of this project. Mrs. Ahlstrom stated, “For many years to come those involved with the 4-H program will be blessed because of what he has done for the Lincoln County 4-H.”
