It's Expo time

Corsicana — The 2013 Navarro County Youth Expo kicks off Monday, beginning a week of shows, judging events, and culminating in a steak luncheon and sale Saturday to reward the youth who participate in the show.

With activities each day through sale day Saturday — and even clean-up duty on Sunday — judging in both "ag" and "non-ag" events will take place daily, with Wednesday and Saturday being the two "busiest" days at the show.
