Lewis and Lorrae Moon grew up participating in county fairs as 4-H members and as part of ranching families.
Now, as parents and youth leaders, they continue to participate in the Moffat County Fair and 4-H program in a variety of ways.
They raised their three boys, Doyle, Rance, and Nate, in the ranching lifestyle and they continue to work on their family ranch north of Craig.
In so doing, they excitedly supported their children as they became involved in 4-H and FFA. The Moon family has participated in the Moffat County Fair for 18 years.
They have worked with the fair and the 4-H program in numerous capacities.
Lewis served two terms on the Moffat County Fair Board and Lorrae has served as a leader of the Elkhead Wranglers Community 4-H Club for five years.
They have also served as horse and goat club leaders. Lorrae has served as a 4-H Council leader advisor.
The whole family has been involved in interstate 4-H exchange trips.
During fair, they have put on the Survivor Olympics and last year, Turkey Bowling, favorite events for all ages. They have actively encouraged 4-H members to be involved in community outreaches.
As a leader, Lorrae has done Life Skills Workshops with the youth, cooperating with businesses in the area. She is a master canner and has done workshops for the public on canning and drying techniques for food preservation. The Moons have been active in FFA as members and in the Alumni Association.
As Lorrae energetically puts it, “4-H and fair have been a huge part of our family.”
That enthusiasm is par for the course for the family, which
is why the Moffat County Fair Board has chosen Lewis and Lorrae as 2010 Honorary Volunteers
The board thanks the couple for all their dedication and service.
