At the last 4-H meeting, members made a unanimous decision to donate the full profit from the annual flower basket sales to the construction of the Agriplex. On behalf of the 4-H members, we would like to thank the community for supporting the 4-H fundraiser again this year.

On another note, the 4-H sheep members received a $500 donation from Thompson Nicola Regional District Area ‘O’ Director, Bonnie CruzelleMyram for the purchase of a new sheep scale. The rest of the funds for the scale were donated by Interior Plumbing and Heating.

The sheep scale was used for the first time on Sunday, May 15. The new scale made the weigh-in so much easier and more efficient. Thank you very much for the generous donations.
