The 2012 4H fair season is drawing to a close, and the Agassiz Rainbow 4H club is happy to announce that we surpassed the personal goals we set for ourselves, and had a ton of fun doing it!

Our dairy club did very well at the PNE. Danielle Chard was the grand overall show person, and she came first in the senior fitting competition. Megan Skalicky was grand intermediate show person, had the overall champion calf, and came first in intermediate fitting. Brooke Webb had the champion Jersey calf.

The swine club had a lot of new members this year who were enthusiastic to learn how to show. At the Abbotsford Agrifair, Megan Skalicky was senior champion show person and Aidan Vanparidon was junior champion show person.

In our sheep club, Brooke Webb was champion show person at the Agrifair, had champion ewe lamb and champion yearling.

We are so proud of all our members who strived to do better this year, and as always, learned to do by doing.

We only have one fair left, and we hope you will come and cheer us on as we achieve at the Agassiz Fall Fair, Sept. 15.
