Despite the sweltering heat, with temperatures reaching 36C this week, 4-Hers from across the region are giving it their all for the 60th Annual 4-H Show and Sale in Williams Lake.
Things kicked off Wednesday, Aug. 8 and will finish up with the opening ceremony and sale on Monday, Aug. 13 beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Participants have come from the Big Lake, Boitanio Lake, Canim Valley, Chimney Valley, Horsefly, Lone Butte, Rose Lake/Miocene and Springhouse Clubs.
On Thursday evening the Tribune dropped by to meet some of the participants, many of whom were working hard to keep their animals cool.
Here are some of the people we met.
The special 4-H supplement went out with Wednesday’s Tribune and copies are available at the Tribune on First Avenue North.
It features write-ups and photographs contributed by each of the youth participating this year.
Members of the public are encouraged to visit the show and sale as it’s a great opportunity to meet the participants and see the fruits of their efforts.
