Achievement day highlights accomplishments of Lac La Biche 4-H members

The annual 4-H Achievement Day was held on Friday, June 7 at the Lakeland Agricom.

LAC LA BICHE - The accomplishments made by members of the Lac La Biche 4-H District over the past year were showcased for all to see during the club’s annual Achievement Day, on Friday, June 7, at the Lakeland Agricom.

Despite consistent rain and cool temperatures, a small crowd gathered in the bleachers and inside the shelter on the grounds around the rodeo arena for the beef show, which kicked off this year’s Achievement Day in afternoon.

One by one, competitors led the steers that they have been raising and caring for around the arena. While most of these animals didn’t mind being paraded around, a few were slightly hesitant, with their owners requiring a bit of assistance from the ring men in getting them through the viewing portion of the beef show.

Once the cattle had been shown off, they were looked over by judges.

But it wasn’t only the achievements of 4-H members who raise livestock that were celebrated during Friday’s event. Several local youngsters who are involved with the organization were able to show off the projects they’ve done with people visiting the weekly Lac La Biche Farmer’s Market from 3-5 p.m.

These included automotive, sewing and poultry projects as well as those focused on outdoor activities, cooking, and creative arts. Many of the exhibits-which were set up near the vendors-featured colourful and interested displays highlighting what each project was about.

There was also a poultry show featuring chickens whom members have been working with.

The special day for the local 4-H club concluded on Friday evening with a steer sale at 7 p.m. featuring a live auctioneer.
