Wind storm destroys 4-H photo exhibits

A wicked windstorm tore through the Williams Lake Stockyards on Monday afternoon, Aug. 22, destroying the tents where the 4-H photography was displayed for the annual 4-H Show and Sale Aug. 19 to 24.

A wicked windstorm tore through the Williams Lake Stockyards on Monday afternoon, Aug. 22, destroying the tents where the 4-H photography was displayed for the annual 4-H Show and Sale Aug. 19 to 24.

Eight framed photos that were to be sold at the sale on the Wednesday night were destroyed, says Linda Bartsch, Williams Lake & District 4-H Council treasurer.

“They were broken to bits and we thought we had a disaster on their hands,” Bartsch says. “A call went into the Craig Smith of About Face Photography. He went to work early on Tuesday morning and repaired all of the broken projects, at no cost to the kids, by the end of the day.”

She says the Williams Lake & District 4-H Council extends its thanks to Craig Smith for his timely and generous support for the 4-H photography kids.

Photography is a project in 4-H and there were some amazing photos displayed and sold at the annual show and sale this month.
