4-H Members Speak Up

Pipestone Flyer

    On February 24, the members of the Falun East Beef 4-H Club hosted their annual public speaking competition. The speeches were all well-done and well executed. The junior category’s champion was Kate Harink, and second place went to Chance Ewart. Rachel Shaw claimed the first intermediate prize, with Kyle Knull placing second. In the senior division, Taylor Schnell won first, and Kristen Shaw placed second. We were also treated to four fantastic presentations. In the junior category, Kate Harink took home first. Branson Harden placed first in the intermediate division, with the pair of Will Harink and Aiden Brown placing second. The group of Karleigh Brown, Laci Schmidt, and Melissa Hirsekorn achieved first for the senior category.

    The club has a busy few months planned. Upcoming this month is the calf tour and the hanging flower basket sale. April includes mini show and achievement day preparations. The club’s achievement day is planned for May 13, 2013, at the Wetaskiwin Ag. Grounds. We hope to see you there.
