Falun 4-H East Beef Club Update

Pipestone Flyer

As the winter comes and goes, the Falun 4-H East Beef Club is hard at work with their calves, cows and steers. Christmas has come and gone so fast but luckily there was still plenty of time to continue working with their projects and halter break some of them. The members are hard at work as their club goal states that they are to have their calves halter broke in the next couple of weeks.

However, even though their calves are getting plenty of attention, it is also time for members to start rehearsing as the club’s annual Public Speaking event is to be held at the Falun Hall on February 22, 2015, where all members will present their speech and also have impromptus to perform. This is always a fun day when members can speak about something they care about or find interesting. However, the fun doesn’t end there as the club is planning fun activities for their members like skiing, and our Chinese Gift Exchange that was held last meeting.

With all the fun events coming up the club always loves to give back. As the 4-H pledge states, “my hands to larger service…” the members are doing just that as they have donated presents before the holidays to the charity Ronald McDonald House, where the club hopes their presents can bring smiles to the children’s faces.

All in all the club is doing great and are very eager for May 11, 2015 when the club will be holding their Show and Sale day. This is always the biggest event held by our club and it is definitely one we encourage you to come to. When it is all said and done and each animal has been shown, the sale will begin where anyone or any company may bid on a steer to buy. The Falun 4-H East Beef Club hopes you are starting off with a great 2015 and hopes to see you at the sale.
