Sonora, CA — The Mother Lode Fairgrounds will be a busy place this weekend.
Ron Hamilton, 4-H Tuolumne County Council President and Sue Moore, President of the Small Livestock Association were Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
Besides the traditional carnival rides and grandstand shows, the Mother Lode Fair brings a chance for kids to learn life lessons through competitions and the livestock auctions. Hundreds of students are showcasing animals this weekend.
“4-H gives kids the speaking skills and confidence that they are going to need as they get older and go for job interviews,” says Hamilton. “Also if they are raising livestock they learn the market, and what goes into raising and selling an animal.”
The large auction is held on Saturday and smaller version on Sunday.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning on AM 1450 KVML at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45am.
