This year, Silver Willow 4-H club will be running three projects: Dog, Sheep & Beef. Beef is lead by Katherine Ross and Sherri Collins, Sheep will be lead by Val Shiply and Scott Seilin and Dog, to be lead by Christine Taylor. Do any of these projects sound interesting to you? There’s still time to join. Contact Niki at for more information on how to get your kids involved in the 4-H youth program.

Our beef members will be having their first weigh in on November 3, 2019. This will include an initial weigh in, ear tags and vaccinations. All beef members are required to attend.

Sheep members will be starting shortly as many are trying ewe with lamb unit as well as market lamb. Dog members are always working with their canine partners to improve their partnership.

With the year starting to take off, we will be having our annual sledding party at the Ross’s Cabin in December. Each member will be required to bring a gift for the gift exchange.

Big congratulations to Quinne, Kamryn, Piper, Bailey, Donovan and Keandra who’s 2018-2019 project record books have moved in to be judged at District level. Final winners will be announced at the District year end social event. This is a revamp of our old awards night. The committee of members from all six clubs have organized the event, which will be held at Charlie Lake Hall on November 15 and will include a dance with a number of other fun stuff on top of a smaller awards presentation. Oh right, there is also a pie auction too.

Thanks to all those who sponsor our club and district throughout the 4-H year without your support our year would not be as eventful as it is with your help.
