Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H achievement day this week

Hello fellow citizens of Williams Lake area and visitors!

By Brenda Van Wyck

Hello fellow citizens of Williams Lake area and visitors!

I hope you enjoyed the Stampede parade that took place June 28 here in Williams Lake.

The parade theme was “Brought to you by the number 4 and the letter H.”

The Rose Lake Miocene club worked very hard on our float this year coming in third  place over all in the parade.

A big thank-you goes out to Penny Gentles, Derek Gentles, Save on Foods, and Troy Bremner of Westline Harvesting Ltd. for helping out with our float.

Another thank you goes out to the Miocene Community Club for helping our club out with grandstand clean-ups and donating all the pop bottles to us.

We appreciate every bit of support we can get.

The Rose Lake Miocene cow camp held on Jun 21-22 went really well.

We learned many things including how to properly groom and fit a steer using different techniques, and correct showmanship and etiquette.

Our club bottle sorting happened at the Miocene hall July 9 before our club meeting.

We all worked hard to sort bottles into bags and loaded them into the trailer to be sent to the bottle depot.

A big milestone for our 4-H club is coming up on July 25 and 26 at the Miocene Hall.

It is our club Achievement Day.

Achievement Day is a day where our club gets together with our 4-H projects and we compete against each other.

It is a small show for our club so that we can get used to the feeling of showing and presenting our animals before Show and Sale.

We are all super excited to partake in this event.

July 25 will be the achievement show for the tractor project, the food projects, and the small engine projects.

July 26 will be the achievement for all of the other projects including sheep, beef, photography, cloverbuds and swine.

Wish us luck!

That is it for this Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H update. I hope you are enjoying your summer so far!
