4-H fair tradition continues

MEMBERS of the local Shamrock 4-H club will be showing off their animal projects at the Skeena Valley Fall Fair.

MEMBERS of the local Shamrock 4-H club will be showing off their animal projects to  those attending the Skeena Valley Fall Fair all weekend long at the Thornhill Community Grounds.

“It’s something that’s fairly popular with the public,” said Laurie Muller, key leader of the Shamrock 4-H club.

Throughout the year,  27 4-H members have been raising and taking care of their animals, which will now be judged. At various checkpoints throughout the last 12 months, their animals were assessed, but now it’s the real deal.

On Sept. 7, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., all things will taken into consideration to assess how well animals were cared for.

Yvette Favron is the poultry leader for the 4-H club, and said  chickens raised from chicks will be featured.

Raising and caring for animals teaches children about animal husbandry, Favron said.

But the skills can also branch out from them to include entrepreneurial skills.

“They may choose to sell them, so they learn how to run a business,” said Favron.

4-H members are allowed to have up to four projects, and can have a combination of both rabbit and poultry entries. Fall fair gates open 9 a.m. on Sept. 7 and Sept. 8.
