25 Years Ago: 1997

Calf and pig scrambles and a pumpkin decorating contest were highlights for children on the sixth day of Maine’s Blue Ribbon Classic at the Fryeburg Fair.

Twelve 4-H club members ages 14 to 16 entered the scramble for 10 calves. Each contestant was given a piece of rope and instructed to make it into a halter to capture the calves.

Participants were Bradley Briggs of Deerfield, N.H.; Randy Brown, South Paris; Joe Gammon, Limerick; Kim Lavoie, Livermore; Jeremy Litchfield, Buckfield; Danny McAllister, Buckfield; Seth Megee, West Gardiner: Richard Merrill, Brownfield; Scott Oldham, Penacook, NH.; Andrew Pratt, Strong; Bethany Scorch, Rochester, N.H and Chris Scott Tripp, South Paris.

David Hastings served as master of ceremonies and explained the spring calves were purchased by the fair association from farms in South Paris, Buckfield, Hiram, Limerick, Gardiner and Dover, N.H.

Every contestant must be a 4-H club member approved by the county club agents to raise the calves they catch and bring them back next fall to be entered in the 1998 4H Baby Beef Auction.
