Hello dear readers. This is Ben Stafford, reporter for the Chimney Valley 4-H Club.
The year of 4-H is almost over.
The Chimney Valley Club would like to thank Mueller Electric for their sponsorship. We’d also like to thank all the people who came to watch the 53rd annual 4-H Show and Sale at the Williams Lake Stockyards Aug. 19 to 24.
Also we thank all of the judges and a special thanks to the buyers.
Things we did this year were the 100 Mile House judging rally, the Williams Lake judging rally, the grad clean-up, the petting zoo at Stampede, an achievement day, a fun day, and show and sale. The club showed well in the finals at show and sale.
Kevin Sokolan won the best of breed Hereford steer. Parker Kennedy won the runner-up in market swine.
Allan Stafford won the reserve champion junior gardening showman and runner-up for gardening.
Yours truly won the reserve champion junior swine showman.
Even though these four people were the only major winners in our club everyone did very well and worked hard.
Also, our president, Amy Stafford, was a B.C. 4-H ambassador at Battle Lake, Alta. during our show and sale.
