4-H Homecraft Clubs

Display of Homecraft Clubs works shown at the Regina fair; M. Robertson (Newbury) stands beneath sign in front of exhibit.

Bio/Historical Note: As early as 1913 Agriculture societies were sponsoring the "Farm Boys Club and the Farm Girls Club,” organizations for youth. The Saskatchewan Agriculture Extension Department promoted the idea of separate classes for youth to exhibit and judge their produce or livestock at local fairs. The "Farm Boys and Farm Girls Clubs" were combined and the name changed to "4-H Clubs" in 1952 and the motto became "Learn To Do By Doing.”
