Hello, my name is Addison Brown. I am 13 years old and live in Stratton, on our family farm. My parents are Mark and Natasha and I have two younger brothers, Nolan and Easton. This fall I will be going into grade 9 at Rainy River High School. I am looking forward to high school sports. In the winter I very much enjoy playing hockey, and baseball in the spring and summer. In my spare time, you can usually find me riding my horses or baking. I have even started my own cookbook. I am very fond of horses. I also have been in the 4-h beef club for the past two years. This year I am taking a market steer and his name is Jack. I also like fishing and spending time at the lake with my family and friends. I would like to thank my sponsors Jeff and Kelly Teeple and family at Blackhawk Simmentals for sponsoring me and making this all possible. The fall fair has a long rich history of bringing people from across our district together and I am proud to play a small part in that this year. I am looking forward to enjoying the rest of this summer and getting to know the other contestants better. Good luck to you all!
