Hey everyone, It's me again. I’m back with the help of my junior reporter buddy, Sydney Loewen, reporting on our past club events and upcoming events.
Every Christmas season our 4-H club tries to give back to the community that has helped us so much. This last Christmas season, we all donated items for a Christmas hamper for a family in need. It was a lot fun to see how happy we made the family, because of the hamper! In December, we also went to the Countryside Lodge Senior’s Complex, in Prespatou. We brought an early supper there, for the seniors, and also played Bingo with them. There were prizes for the winners and we also gave out cards, with meal tickets.
On January 4, we had our 4-H Christmas party. We went sledding at a fellow members’ house. After sledding we went ice-skating at the arena in Buick Creek. When we were done skating, we had supper and did a gift exchange. We all had a lot of fun! On January 26 we had our second weigh-in, most of the members stopped by at Dan and Trudy Loewen’s house to weigh their animals, and went home.
In upcoming events, our club is having a community Valentines Day fundraiser supper on February 15. Our club communications competition is coming up soon, on February 18. The members that place first and second, get to go to district level, from there to regionals and then to the provincials, at the PNE.
Once again, the Prespatou 4-H club would like to thank, Home Hardware, for sponsoring this article, and a big thanks to our readers.
Until next time,
Melissa Dick and Sydney Loewen
