Congratulations to all the 4-H participants across Canada who competed in their Regional Fairs, and to all the parents, grandparents and great-grandparents who attended to support the kids and their projects, including 102-year-old Joan Lawrence of Maple Creek, Sask.
A respected rancher, 4-H and community supporter all of her life, Joan was in the audience cheering on six of her great-grandchildren who were all in town competing in the 4-H Regional Fair in mid-June.
