The 53rd annual Williams Lake & District 4-H Show and Sale wrapped up Wednesday night.

The show and sale, held at the Williams Lake Stockyards, began Friday, with the sale being held last night (after Tribune press time).

Participating clubs included Springhouse, Chilcotin, Big Lake, Canim Valley, Highland, Horsefly, Chimney Valley, Lone Butte, and Rose Lake/Miocene.

Since Friday, club members have been showing their projects they have diligently worked on for the last year. Entries included beef, swine, poultry, rabbits, and sheep, as well as non-agriculture entries, such as photography, clothing, crafts, gardening, small engines, and more.

The show and sale also featured a dog and bike show, food show, games, gift draws, kids’ dance, goat demo, parade of champions, and a buyers appreciation dinner.

4-H, which stands for head, heart, hands, and health, is a program with an agricultural-based background that promotes leadership, knowledge, citizenship, and personal development skills.
