4-H members await weighing of their lambs before competitions start at the 2013 Provincial Winter Fair held at the North Thompson Agriplex in September.

From August 30 to September 2, it was the North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo.  The Yellowhead 4-H Club participated in the Fair, with other 4-H clubs from many places.

The Fall Fair parade float this year was made by Tasha Tremblay. Riding on the float was 4-H alumni and the Yellowhead 4-H Club. There was candy getting thrown to people on the streets, and we almost ran out! This float won first place! Thank you to all the families who donated their time to making this float happen, and a huge thanks to Stamer Logging.

The results for the sheep club members were as follows:

In the 4-H Yearling Ewe Competition, Grace Kempter came 2nd. Next was Showmanship classes; to be a proper showman you just look like you are having fun.
