The 48th Annual Wetzel County 4-H and FFA Ham, Bacon and Egg Show and Sale will be held Friday March 11 at Wetzel County’s Mollohan Center. The sale will begin at 7:30 p.m., with the buyers reception beginning at 7 p.m.

Valley High School, Magnolia High School, and Hundred High School will each have students participating in the show.

All meat has been processed in state-approved facilities. A panel of judges, who are not residents of Wetzel County, will evaluate the meat. The best ham and bacon will be declared Grand Champion, and the runner-up in each category will be designated the title of Reserve Champion. Only meat graded prime, the highest grade possible, or choice, the next highest grade, will be eligible to be sold in the sale.

The best 10 dozen eggs will also be put up for auction. A Carhartt Jacket will be auctioned with proceeds going into the scholarship fund.

Complimentary samples of ham and bacon will be served for the public’s enjoyment. A number of college scholarships will also be awarded to seniors from money generated in past sales. Those who are unable to attend but wish to make a purchase are encouraged to call the following FFA advisors: John Smith, 304-455-1990; Annie Hall Erwin, 304-889-3151; or Scott Ash, 304-775-5221.
