Welcome to this year’s 4-H Show and Sale, taking place Aug. 3-7. The Show and Sale is a culmination of a full year of hard work from the children in 4-H. Featured in this year’s Show and Sale are the projects of more than 135 members. These projects are lovingly cared for by the 4-H members, who are proud to present their work at the Show and Sale.

A message from the Williams Lake and District 4-H Council.

The Williams Lake and District 4-H Council would like to invite the community to come and discover what 4-H has to offer. The 4-H program offers youth an opportunity to learn how to become productive, self-assured adults who can make their community and country a good place in which to live. This is fostered through project and program work, experiences with their 4-H club members and leaders and their participation in district, regional and even provincial programs. The goal of the 4-H program is youth development. The objectives of 4-H clubs are knowledge, leadership, citizenship and personal development.

In 2023, our district has 10 clubs with projects in Beef, Sheep, Swine, Horse, Honey Bee, Gardening, Photography, Foods, Small Engines, Cloverbud, Poultry, Rabbit and Fibre Arts.

We look forward to seeing you all at our Show and Sale Aug. 3-7.
