New 4H club cleans house at Chilliwack Fair

Members place well in showmanship

 

Rushing Rivers Community 4-H Club is a multi-project club in the middle of our first year. We are the newest club in the Chilliwack District. We started off the year with seven members and four different projects being done. Sarah, Morgan, Matthew, and Stephanie all have a dog project. Jacinta has a rabbit project, Jada has a cavy(Guinea pig) project, and Jessica has a photography project.

We started the year with speeches in February. For Senior competitors, Morgan placed first and Jessica came in second. For Junior competitors, Matthew placed first, Jacinta came second, and Stephanie came third. The top two from Sr. and Jr. went on to compete at district level.

Next came our club demos. For Juniors, Matthew and Jacinta came first with a demo on green air fresheners. For Seniors, Sarah and Stephanie placed first with a demo on baking Snickerdoodles and Morgan and Jessica placed second with a demo on using recycled materials to make candle holders. All three demos moved on to compete at district level. Morgan and Jessica placed second, moving on to compete at Fraser Valley Regional Demos.

In May, Chilliwack District held judging. This is where we judge a class of four of something and place them, giving our reasons for our placings. Morgan went to compete at South Coastal Judging Weekend in July.

Next came the Chilliwack Fair, where five of our members showed or displayed and competed with their projects. Morgan and Matthew showed their dog projects. Morgan won Champion Senior Showman with Tristan, and Matthew won a first in Showmanship with Saffron. Jacinta showed her rabbit Cinnamon, and won Champion Junior Showman. Jada showed her guinea pig Charlie and won Reserve Champion Junior Showman. Jessica Meir displayed and competed with her photography project, winning Grand Champion Unit 1. Our club placed first for the “Theme of the Fair” competition, and fifth for stall duty competition.

Our club will be showing at the Agassiz Fall Fair this year and we will have our Awards Banquet in a few months. It has been a fun and successful first year and we are all looking forward to the years to come.
