As we head into August all of our members are busy preparing for the annual Show and Sale. This year the Highland 4-H Club was home to 18 members including cloverbuds, juniors and seniors. Altogether we have Beef, Cloverbud, Foods, Photo, Poultry, Sheep and Swine projects. During our fourth year running, our club members stayed very busy and participated in communications, judging rallies, Youth Action, fundraisers, achievement day and now Show and Sale. Each member has done a tremendous job with their projects and they have all grown in so many ways. We look forward to seeing everyone at the sale this year and we wish the best of luck to all the members.
