Falun East Beef 4-H Club Update

Pipestone Flyer

On September 24, 2014, 15 members of the Falun East 4-H Beef Club met up for their first meeting of the year. 15 bright, and joyful members met up in hopes of having a great season with their steer and also their club. The club is currently planning many events such as Highway Clean-Up, Calf Tour, Public Speaking and also the kick starter to the year, Weigh-In day.

However, before Weigh-In Day came the club held elections. Kristen Shaw was elected President and the Vice-President is now Austin Cummings. Also, Montana Harden as Secretary, Rachel Shaw as Treasurer and Montana Harden as Club Reporter. Historians include Kate Harink and Branson Harden with Mrs. Harink as parent helper, also District Council Rep being Ty Harink. On the Beef Council Committee we have Austin Cummings, Rachel Shaw as members and the parent helpers being Mrs. Harink, Mrs. Shaw and Mr. Cummings. On the Phone Committee we have Kate Harink and on the Social Committee we have Kate Harink, Branson Harden, Chance Ewart and Cheyenna Harden. Finally, on the advertising Committee we have Cheyenna Harden, Branson Harden and Chance Ewart.

On October 18th, we had our Weigh-In Day. Our club met at the Wetaskiwin Ag Grounds with another Beef Club named Rosebrier. For our annual Weigh-In, all members woke up bright and early to also bring food bank donations making a total weight of 419 lbs. in donations. However, when it was the calves turn, they weighed an average of 688 lbs.

With so much already happening in our club, the next while will be spent with our calves and also preparing for future events.
