Quesnel and District 4-H caps off year with photography auction

Key leader Cody Dillabough says the auction will take place through Facebook

The last activities for Quesnel and District 4-H in 2020 are finally moving ahead.

The club has photography from two of its members up for auction on Facebook. Bidding is open from Nov. 18 to 25.

One of the district’s key leaders, Cody Dillabough, said usually the photography would be sold off during the livestock auction, but COVID-19 meant they needed to postpone.

“It’s an easy way to get your Christmas shopping done,” he said.

To bid on the photos, message Quesnel and District 4-H on Facebook.

The photos up for auction are the culmination of a year-long project for the members.

“There’s so much to the program,” Dillabough said. “We’re trying to encourage and highlight that [4-H] is not just about livestock.”

Dillabough added 4-H offers programs like gardening, mechanics and – new for 2021 – adopt a grandparent. Members in Grade 11 and 12 can even earn high school credits through 4-H.

“Even if the project you want to do is not in our project list, there’s a way we can go through the approval process for it,” Dillabough.

Enrollment in 4-H for 2021 will start Dec. 1.

“[The pandemic] was a good way for us to look at things and come up with new ideas and get away from the way it used to be done,” Dillabough said.

The group is also selling tickets to a provincial 50/50, which goes towards supporting provincial programs and scholarships for 4-H in B.C.
