MISSOULA - Potomac Valley 4-H Club had 17 members for the 2017-2018 4-H year. Members brought awards and many ribbons home from the Western Montana Fair as well as top awards including Luke Wilson Grand Champion Poultry, Gavin Kelly Top Leathercraft Award, Haley Helena Top Novice Dairy Goat Showman, Kyla Nelson Judge's Choice Award for Vet Science and Outstanding Sheep Herdsman, Emmett Zander Horse Packing Award and Sydney McDaniel was awarded a $1,500 scholarship from Missoula Southside Lions. Potomac was also awarded Outstanding Club Herdsmanship in the Sheep Barn.

Potomac Club's organizational leaders Victoria Richardson and Allyson Nelson felt it was a good 4-H year overall.

"The [Potomac members] kids did such a good job at fair, in the cafe, and livestock sale table," said Richardson.
