Yellowhead 4-H

Through many generous donations the Yellowhead 4-H club has been able to construct a new electronic weigh scale at the North Thompson Agriplex for use at our monthly weigh days and for the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo (NTFFR) and the Provincial Winter Fair. We would like to thank everyone who donated both time, supplies and money for the building of the scale. A great big thanks to Karl Reiner, Kerry Fennell, Paul Kempter, Ange Pawloff, Darcy Feller, Ian Mitchell, Mark Ralko, Varsteel, Suz Cartage, Barriere Timber Mart, BC Livestock, TNRD, Horn Levy Fund, and the Lower North Thompson Community Forest Society. The scale was set up in time for the NTFFR, and was used for the weighing of the 4-H and open beef projects and the heavy horses. Thanks once again to all the generous contributions.
