Chimney Valley 4-H Club
Hi my name is Karena Sokolan and I am a reporter for the Chimney Valley 4-H club, with my friend Ashley Howell.
On June 28, downtown Williams Lake came alive with the Williams Lake Stampede Parade and the Street Party!
I watched the parade and it was a blast.
There were so many floats and booths. Everyone was so nice and happy. The streets were filled with live music and laughter!
My club put on a petting zoo at Street Party. It was so much fun.
We borrowed a hen and her baby chicks, a lamb, and a bunny.
I had to take care of the bunny and lamb.
The bunny’s name was Snowball and he was really good with all the little kids.
All the kids were so polite. They waited in a line to pet the bunny.
Since it was on a table, I had to lift the kids who couldn’t reach.
They all said thank you after seeing the bunny, Snowball, and it just warmed my heart that all those little kids were so sweet!
The lamb’s name was Baby and he was really nice.
All the kids loved feeding and petting him.
We also had chickens and a rooster that my friend Ashley Howell brought.
She’s really good with birds and knows a lot about them!
She would lift up which chicken each kid wanted and let them pet it.
She was so good with the kids.
We had a miniature pony as well.
His name was Copper and he belonged to Alexis Colton. Copper was really well behaved and loved all the attention.
I had a really fun time at the Williams Lake Stampede Parade and Street Party this year!
It was also the 100th anniversary of 4-H and we celebrated with cake at our petting zoo!
Thanks to all the families that stopped by the zoo, and hope to see you next year !!!!
We would also like to see everyone at the 56th annual 4-H Show and Sale this week.
I have been in 4-H for seven years and four years in beef.
This year I have two projects, market beef and horse that will be at the 4-H show and sale this coming week.
My steers name is Arthur and my horse’s name is Slider.
I love them both and I love 4-H!
If you would like to appreciate all my hard work and many other members’ hard work please stop by for the 55th annual 4-H Show and Sale from August 16 to 20.
The sale is on Wednesday, Aug. 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the ring at the Williams Lake Stockyards.
