Local 4-H club holds speeches and demonstrations day

Club reporter Mattias tells us all about it in his latest submission

At the Cariboo Wolf Pack 4-H Club’s Speeches and Demonstrations, there were some very expressive speakers and interesting demonstrations.

The senior speeches were awesome! Matthew Meir came in first for his incredible speech on spotted owls – it was a hoot. Jacinta Meir came in second place with an informative speech on Dissociative Identity Disorder, giving us a lot to think about. In third place was Terry Flokstra with his speech on The Red Green Show, and the wonderful uses of duct tape!

The Junior speeches were very real, or were they? Marcus Meir came in first with a somewhat mythical speech on a legendary monster called “The Mothman,” and Mattias came in second with a speech on servals, a kind of little wildcat.

As for the demonstrations, dynamic brother and sister duo, Jacinta and Matthew Meir had a demonstration on how to milk a goat, which was quite educational and comical at the same time, featuring a real wooden goat named Peaches! They placed first for senior demonstrations.

For junior demonstrations, first place went to Marcus Meir and Mattias, who did a delicious demonstration on how to make trail mix. Everyone enjoyed helping them cleanup the white chocolate trail mix afterwards.

Overall, it was a complete success. We are looking forward to doing all our speeches and demonstrations again at the District-level competition. Best of luck club!

Also, a big thank you to our judges John, Julie and Monica!
