Long-time Alexandria-based re­al­tor Mau­rice Sauvé re­mem­bers his 4-H ex­pe­ri­ence.

“In my high school years, the 4-H Calf Club was a great learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. From our farm on Lochiel Road, I and my four broth­ers and sis­ters would at­ten­tively raise and groom our cho­sen calf and show it at the Maxville Fair and Wil­liamstown Fair as part of the 4H Calf Club. Our fa­ther, Ade­lard, also par­tic­i­pated. Through calf club meet­ings at var­i­ous farms, we learned tech­niques and show­man­ship, which we still use to­day. We made many farm friends whom we will still en­joy talk­ing to to­day. Thanks to the 4-H Club for many mem­o­ries and life skills.
