I am pleased to tell you that I will be writing you about the Silver Willow 4-H Club ongoings this year! Today, I’ll write to you about what we’ve done so far including a parent meeting, first beef weigh-in, and club meeting.
We had a parent meeting for all 4-H parents in the Silver Willows Club in late October getting parent leaders established (welcome to Nikki Mailman!) and updated new families on 4-H.
On November 11, we had our first beef weigh-in where we all found out our starting weight for our 2018-2019 projects. We gave the new projects their 4-H tags as well as gave them all their vaccines, which were sponsored by North Peace Veterinary Clinic.
On November 18, we had our first official club meeting in which we touched base on how our projects were doing (great by the way!) and elected members for positions in the club, in the end congratulations for the following positions earned:
- President: Bella Lucas-Jaringan
- Vice President: Garrett Fell
- Treasurer: Rheana Gilbert
- Secretary: Keanna Wideman
- Press Reporter: Jennifer Bell
- Safety Officer: Donovan Snider
The meeting was followed by a potluck and individual meetings for beef, sheep, and dog 4-H discussing what we should be doing with our projects in the following months.
