The Chimney Valley 4-H Club

The Chimney Valley 4-H Club has been operating for 12 years. We currently have 32 friendly 4-H members with a wide variety of projects this year including; Cloverbuds, Beef, Sheep, Swine, Photography and Poultry. Whether you live on small property or large cattle ranch we welcome everyone and work together to help each other be successful.

You may have seen our members helping out around town or at the TRU Williams Lake Annual Gala where members are assigned to a job such as coat check, parking valet and holding doors for the guests and clean up.

The 4-H program offers so many opportunities for youth. The 4-H motto is “Learn to Do by Doing” and that is exactly what we do. So please come and join us at the 2019 Show and Sale. Watch for our bright lime green club colors and don’t hesitate to stop and say hello!

For more information on the Chimney Valley 4-H club please contact Amy Carson @ amycarson@xplornet.com.

See you Aug. 7-14 at the Williams Lake Stockyards, 4665 Cattle Drive!

Addyson Cullum

Hello. My name is Addyson Cullum and I am 12 years old; this is my third year in 4-H and I am part of the Chimney Valley 4-H club. I am doing turkey again this year (I was the Reserve Champion Showman last year).

I am raising the breed Orlopp Bronze again this year and my turkey’s name is Jerry. I live on a little hobby farm with 10 chickens, 12 turkeys, two lambs, one dog and two cats.

I love 4-H because you get to learn about how to work as a team, how to public speak, judge different classes of animals, Achievement Day, meetings (were the kids make all the decisions!), fundraisers, Show and Sale and so much more!! 4-H really teaches you about work ethic because your animal depends on you for food, water, shelter and love, because if you don’t they could die of dehydration in the hot weather.

My lot number is #48, please come and check me out at the 61st Annual 4-H Show and Sale Aug. 8-12 for the shows and the 12th at 6 p.m. for the sale… bye for now, see you there!

Ashtynn Cullum

Hello. My name is Ashtynn Cullum, I am 11 years old, and this is my second year being able to do a market project; I chose lamb again. I am very excited about The 61st Annual Show and Sale. I have been working very hard with my animal and hope that each one of you that reads this come and check us out.

I am part of the Chimney Valley 4-H Club and you will find me in the lamb section at Lot #47 if you would like to come check out my project. At Show and Sale there are five days of fun; we will be showing our animals from August 8th – 12th with the sale on the 12th at 6 p.m. There is one day of clean up which only club members will attend.

This year I made it very far in 4-H speeches. I first attended club speeches where I earned first place for juniors; my speech topic was about video games and the Bowron Lakes and that kids should get outside more often. After that I attended district speeches earning first place again, and after that I attended regional speeches earning a second place finish. That’s the furthest that juniors can go in speeches.

In our district we do lots of fun things like judging rallies, speeches, fundraisers, work bees and of course learn lots about our animals and other animals too.

My lamb’s name is Nibbles and my lamb and I have been working very hard. So once again I hope that each and every one of you come and check us out at the 61stAnnual Show & Sale!

Chelsia Weetman

My name is Chelsia Weetman, I’m 10 years old and this is my first year in 4-H. I am part of the Chimney Valley 4-H club and doing Unit 1 photography as my project.

I live on Big Creek Ranch and love riding horses and helping around the ranch. My horses name is Pepper and she likes to go for rides. I enjoy taking pictures of our animals and wildlife.

I chose photography as my project this year because I like taking pictures and wanted to learn more about cameras and taking photographs. Also, I’m new to 4-H and am still learning all the different projects and what there is to do in 4-H. So far, I’m enjoying my first year in 4-H.

I will be bringing my photos to Show and Sale (Lot 71) August 8-12 at the Williams Lake Stockyards. See you there!

Cassandra Hill

My name is Cassandra Hill. I am 11 years old. This is my second year with a project. Last year I had a lamb named Loki but this year I have turkeys. Turkeys are hard. I had some that died but I learned a lot and now my turkeys are big. I walk them around and I can hug them. They really like it when I pick green stuff for them. My biggest one is called Tommen but he has a crooked toe. I am excited to Show my other big one. He is very quiet. I am excited for Show and Sale this year.

Brooke-Lynne Hill

My name is Brooke-Lynne Hill. This is my fourth year in 4-H but only my first doing a photography project. I enjoy photography and things in the art area. I do lots of art forms: music and drawing, as well as painting and photo taking. I find it super exciting to be able to show off my photos. I went into 4-H this year because I really enjoy it. This 4-H year has been especially exciting and fun due to the growth of my photo taking ability. My favourite stuff to take photos of are things like flowers, only because they have so much depth and character. Something that challenges me though are taking portraits, its hard to get proper angles and lighting. I hope you come out to support the arts at show and sale!

Adanna Nustad

Hello, my name is Adanna Nustad, I am a senior member, and president of the Chimney Valley 4-H club. I would like to invite you to the 61st annual Show and Sale at the Williams Lake Stockyards from August 8th- 12th. The sale is Monday, Aug. 12 at 6:30 p.m. with the Parade of Champions at 5:30 p.m. This year I am doing, for my second year, a market beef project.I bought my steer in the middle of November from Sunshine Ranch in Horsefly. My steer is a black Limousin/Angus and has been fed altwasser ration and hay since the day I got him. I had to switch to dairy ration for a short period of time because of the low amount that the feed store had. This year was different from last years calm steer because at the beginning of the year when I got my steer and started halter breaking him he was very aggressive. Now that I have worked with him more he has calmed down to the point where you wouldn’t think he was ever aggressive, he still has his moments but he has improved immensely. I hope to see all of the potential buyers at show and sale. See ya then!

Lane Carson

Hello, my name is Lane Carson and this is my third year in the Chimney Valley 4-H Club. I enjoy 4-H because it is educational and I get to learn about animals while hanging out with my friends. We also help out in the community. I am raising a very handsome market hog named Simon. Simon is a Yorkshire with a long back and a large rump. In our pig pen we have four pigs, but he is by far the beast of them all. He is a healthy weight of 215 pounds as of July 14th. I estimate that he will be 250-260 pounds by Show and Sale, the perfect market weight. I hope that you come and enjoy the sale with me, Simon and the rest of the 4-H kids. Come look for me in the Chimney Valley swine alley Aug. 8-12 at the Williams Lake Stockyards 4665 Cattle drive lot #44.

Ella Carson

Hello, my name is Ella Carson and this is my fifth year in the Chimney Valley 4-H Club. I have a market lamb named Everest. He is a pure breed Hampshire. Being a Hampshire means his face is covered with wool. He looks like such a teddy bear. Everest has the most amazing eyes; they are dark brown with gold and black accents. Everest is long and very well muscled. When I got him, he was 70 pounds. On July 13 he was approximately 135 pounds. I hope to see you at this years 61st annual Show and Sale, which takes place Aug. 8-12 at the Williams Lake Stockyards 4665 Cattle drive. Come by and see me, Ella Carson and Everest, lot #43.

Denzel Cote

My name is Denzel Cote from Chimney Valley 4-H Club I am 12 years old and this is my fourth year in 4-H . This year I have a mature cow, a heifer project, and two steer projects, a carcass steer which is entered in the PNE carcass competition and a market steer which will sell at Show & Sale. He is lot 45. My steer’s name is Signature and he is a Maine X steer I purchased from a family friend. He has been a great steer to raise and I expect he will be great to eat! My carcasses have always placed well in the results, my very first year I won Champion Carcass at the PNE, and they always are grade AAA. I am sure that my steers this year will be top quality beef as well. I am excited for Show & Sale, I hope that lots of people are able to come out and enjoy the show!

Dawson Spady

My name is Dawson Spady. I am 10 years old and this is my second year in 4-H. I am in the Chimney Valley 4-h club with a lot of my friends from school. I have shown cattle with my family since I was four but I really like being old enough for 4-H and have my own 4-H steer! I have a market steer and a carcass steer, a heifer and a cow calf pair for my projects. My carcass steer is entered at the PNE and my market steer is Lot #69 selling at Show and Sale. He is a Maine X steer and his name is Nightmare. Nightmare is really cool and has been lots of fun to raise. He is pretty quiet so training him was not too bad except that he licks me a lot! I think he looks pretty meaty and should be a great carcass.
