Hello fellow citizens of Williams Lake and Area!

This is the moment all of us 4-H kids have been waiting for; the 56th Annual 4-H Show and Sale.

Tonight, Wednesday, Aug. 20 wraps up almost a week of activities with the annual 4-H sale beginning with the parade of champions at 5:30 p.m. followed by the opening ceremonies and sale starting at 6:30 p.m.

As the club reporter of the Rose Lake Miocene 4-H club I am inviting each and every one of you to attend this year’s show and the sale tonight.

Aug. 16 to Aug. 21 club members from around the district have come together to compete and show their projects whether it is horse, beef, dog, lamb, and many more.

Tonight many members will sell the animals that they have worked so hard on all year.

For those of you who attended show and sale last year or in the past, we appreciate your support and hope you can make it again.

As I mentioned before, this is the moment all of us 4-H’ers have been working so hard for since the moment we get our animals.

That’s why we would love to have you come check us out and ask us questions or even just watch.

This event is a great opportunity to ask us questions about what 4-H is all about, watch us in action, and even purchase one of our very own 4-H raised animals, pictures, or foods.

Every 4-H animal is raised with excellence so that the buyers will get top quality products.

So, if you can make it down to the Williams Lake Stockyards to check out what we’re doing, we’d be thrilled to show you around and answer your questions.

I sincerely hope to see you there!
