Although the 4-H year hasn’t gone as planned for the 4-H members with no shows and no camping we can still finish the year on a high with an excellent sale. BC Livestock and the Williams Lake & District 4-H Council will be working out the details which will be published as we get closer to the date.

Let’s come together as a community and give these 4-H members a great sale.
