Good showing at Ponoka District 4-H Show and Sale

May 6 and 7 at the Calnash Ag Event Centre

Organizers were thrilled with the Ponoka District 4-H Show and Sale which ran May 6 and 7 at the Calnash Ag Event Centre.

"It takes a village to put on a show and sale like this, and what a village we have," said Patrick Lentz, president of the Ponoka District 4-H Beef Committee.

"Board members, leaders, parents, volunteers, and the 4-H members put in so much effort to make this event happen. The community also came out like never before to support the efforts that our youth have put in over the past 211 days with their projects."

Bidding was done both in-person and online through Vold, Jones and Vold.

The club and district (both clubs combined) champions are as follows:

"This means so much to see such strong support. Again, we set a new record for a sale average at $6.78/lb, which is amazing as the members' costs have gone up tremendously."

Lentz said it was overwhelming to see the sale's high attendance overall.

"It's an extremely unique opportunity for the community to come together. Roughly 300 people also attended the supper, which was sponsored by the event. It is always a great wrap-up for the members to socialize with their buyers and community supporters."
