Allison, 18, her sisters — Lindsay, 16, Jamie, 11, and Harvest, 6 ½ — and other Buffalo County 4-H members continue to prepare entries for a county fair closed to the general public. The only fairgrounds events July 22-27 in Kearney will be judging of 4-H animals and static exhibits. Allison and her mom, Kim, said Gibbon’s graduation will be a small ceremony in the high school gym open to only the graduates’ parents and siblings. Kim said school officials didn’t realize July 25 was during fair week when they selected the new date.
