Fall Fair 4-H winners

2016 North Thompson Fall Fair and Rodeo 4-H winners

Fall fair was wet this year but that didn’t stop the Yellowhead 4-H members from showing their projects. They had the Agriplex to keep them dry. Three 4-H clubs attended the fair this year, Yellowhead, Yale County, and Lower North Thompson. Members had to prepare their animal projects and then show them in a ring. A judge would judge them for showmanship and for the quality of their animal. The judge for the sheep was Trevor French. The judge for the beef was Harley Jette. The judge for photography was Dennis Farquharson. The goat judge was Jessica Peters. Our top sheep members that placed 1st and 2nd are as follows:
