On Tuesday, July 30, at Feller’s house, there was a 4-H Speak and Show/Pool Party night. There were five speak and shows, two speeches, and a whole lot of swimming!
The night started out with kids swimming in the salt water pool, playing basketball, football, and adults visiting. Dinner was served, many of the families brought platters of home cooked meals. There were hamburgers as well, and the supper was fabulous!
The Speak and Shows then started. The Senior 4-H members who did a Speak and Show were Hannah Feller with “How to Make Potted Plants,” Garrett Tremblay presented his Speak and Show on “Saving Hours Increasing Time, Ode to the Outhouse”. “Healthy Farm, Healthy Cattle, Happy Farmer,” was presented by Christine Kempter, Saul Lingren did his Speak and Show on “Power Saw Safety/How to Work a Power Saw”, and lastly, Quinn Brackman presented his on “Home Canning.”
These presentations kept the crowd on their toes, they made people laugh, and they were enjoyable to watch.
There were two speeches that were given that night as well. Hannah Wadlegger’s speech was on “My Family’s Cattle Drive,” and Nicole Huber’s speech was “How Agriculture has progressed over the Years.”
Hannah’s was very funny (pictured top right), it was hilarious in fact! Nicole’s taught us about agriculture and was very well practiced and displayed.
First place Speak and Show went to Garrett Tremblay (pictured right), second place was awarded to Hannah Feller, and Christine Kempter won third place. The judges for the night were Monica Peterson, Bhreagh Farquharson, and Ashley MacDougall. These judges were great, and dedicated.
There was ice cream for dessert, kids played, swam, and talked. Families soon departed from the party.
It was a very fun evening.
Thank you to the Fellers who held this awesome party, thanks to all the presenters, we really enjoyed all of them, and lastly, thank you to the judges.
