Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H Club
The Rose Lake/ Miocene club has been running for over 50 years. This year we have 31 members. The projects that are currently running are; Photography, Small Engines, Horse, Beef, Swine, Poultry, Rabbit, Sheep and Cloverbuds.
Our club meets are held at the Miocene Community Hall on the second Wednesday of every month, January through to October at 6:30 p.m.
Some activities that we’ve done this year include a winter social, club speeches, helped with a barn fundraiser, and of course we held our annual Easter Petting Zoo in the mall, among other fundraisers. We’ve really enjoyed doing these things together! Our club has really pulled together this year to support each other, our club and our communities.
Our leaders, parents and members have really put the 4-H pledge into action. “For our club, our community and our country” We are really blessed to have such a great group of youth and leaders and parents.
This year we made the decision to buy new show shirts for the club. It was impossible to find a western shirt in our traditional burgundy color that would fit all our members. So, starting at the 2019 Show and Sale, look for our club wearing our new, sharp black show shirts.
We invite and welcome all to come and enjoy the animals and youth at the Williams Lake and District Show and Sale and we’d like to thank the community members from Williams Lake and surrounding areas that have supported us along our journey! Thank You!
Hi, my name is Sarah Shoults. I’m nine-years-old. This is my first year as a junior and my first year bringing a project to the Williams Lake Show and Sale. I chose to raise a lamb this year and I’m really excited to bring her to the Show and Sale. Her name is Lady, she is a North Country, Chevet cross. She is heavier than I am now and can be a bit challenging to walk. I’ve been practising and hope that she’ll do well in her show classes. She likes to be around other sheep, so I think she’ll be ok. Come and watch Lady and I in the sheep show, on August 9th at 9:30am.

Hi! My name is Lauren Bedford (Lot #137). I am 17 and have been involved in 4-H with the Rose Lake/ Miocene club for four years. In past years I have raised either a turkey or a beef animal for my project but, this year I have chosen to be in photography as it is easier to do along side my college courses.
I have come to really enjoy being in the action while capturing history, wildlife, and ranching, in pictures. I hope to show many of these pictures at our 4-H Show and Sale located at the Williams Lake Stockyards from August 8th- the 12th.
