This is the second year the Highland 4-H Club had been running in 100 Mile House, with 26 members and eight leaders. In our club we have beef, cloverbud, dog, horse, photo, poultry, sheep, swine and new this year is aquaculture.
All of our members have been working hard with their projects this year and they are continuously helping out with fundraisers and club activities. We are looking forward to this year’s show and sale Aug. 5 to 9 and having all the clubs back together.
