In the Intermediate category, third place went to Dallas Cummings, second place to Cheyenna Harden and first place to Montana Harden. In the Senior category, the third place winner was Kyle Knull, second was Rachel Shaw and first was Kristen Shaw. For Intermediate Presentations, first place went to Branson Harden. Finally for Senior Presentations, second place went to Austin Cummings and Will Harink and first place going to Kennedy Harden. Each member did an amazing job and the effort each member put into their speech really showed. The top two members from each category will be going on to District Public Speaking on March 6th and 7th at Moose Hall. Congratulations to all members on a fantastic day with exceptional speeches.

Finally, a big thank-you to all our judges for coming out as well as to Alta Link for donating money to the event. Now the club is looking forward to the upcoming Calf Tour as well as the biggest event of the year, Achievement Day.

Alder Flats 4-H Multi Club

The months of January and February sure flew by. Our 4-H club went luging on January 10th in Camrose at the ski hill. It was so cool learning how to turn in a luging sled. On the 16th of January we had Bring a Friend Movie Night at the Winfield Hall. The movie we watched was Wall-E. It was such an awesome night with popcorn and drinks.

This year for our community service activity, we helped the Winfield Parent Council put on Family Day at the Winfield Hall. We helped set up and cleaned up for the pancake breakfast. Also we did some face painting, provided games for kids, and helped with skating and outdoors games. Some of the members helped with the teams of horses, giving sleigh rides. We also helped with the lunch and clean up at the end of the day.

On Feb. 21, we had our Club Communication Competition. In the senior division first place was Wylie Pietsch, second was Layne Magnuson. First place for intermediates went to Emily Pietsch, second to Montana Brown. In the junior division first place went to Quinn Woods, second to Erich Pietsch and third to Madison Hickey. Emily Clarkson came in first for her presentation.

Thank you to Alta Link for sponsoring this event and to all the great ladies who judged us that day.
