Yellowhead 4-H Club Speech Day was on Feb. 21, at the Barriere Lions Hall.

The 4-H members performed their speeches that they had been preparing for weeks before.

This event started at 11:00 a.m. and ended at 5:00 p.m.

There were 37 speeches in all, and the topics were Internet Safety, My Family, Lego, and Sleep, just to name a few.

Also the Senior members had to perform an impromptu speech and the topic for this was ‘What are the Characteristics of a Hero?’

The senior judges were Dennis Farquharson, Ginger McCurdy and Cory Carmichael.

Junior judges were Carol McNeil, Christine Oates and Hazel Wadlegger, and the pre-club judge was Monica Peterson.

A big thank you goes out to all the judges that came.

There was a silent auction where many great things were sold.

At the end the judges gave the 4-H members some helpful tips on how to improve.

Speech day was a great success.
