Falun East Beef 4-H Update

Pipestone Flyer

    The members of the Falun East Beef 4-H Club are in a mad dash of the final stretch of their 4-H year. With the final weeks suddenly upon the group, it is crucial to make sure that all of the calves are up to par for the upcoming Achievement Day. The last few months have been busy ones for the club, including Public Speaking, Calf Tour and Mini Show, not to mention the constant training and grooming that needs to be done in preparation of the final day.

    On May 3rd, groups and organizations all over Alberta participate in the annual High-Way Clean-Up campaign. The Falun East Beef 4-H Club has lent a helping hand in cleaning the ditches in our county for many years, and will continue this year with members cleaning the ditches from Lone Ridge Hall to the Wetaskiwin city limits along Highway 13. Please slow down as you pass crews in the ditches for the safety of the members, and a honk or a wave is always appreciated.

    Achievement Day will be held on May 12th, 2014 at the Wetaskiwin Agricultural Grounds. The show starts with the Parade of Clubs at 8:30 am, with the shows to follow. Lunch is provided, and the sale will begin at 2:30 pm. On behalf of both the Falun East Beef 4-H Club and the Rosebrier Beef 4-H Club, we would like to invite you to come see what 4-H is all about and spend the day with us. The members always have loads of fun and we hope you will too. We hope to see you there.
