Pipestone Flyer

    The members of the Falun East Beef 4-H Club met for the first time of the season on Wednesday, September 11 at the Falun Hall.  Everyone was pleased to see many familiar faces, two new members, and eager smiles. The organization has many events planned over the course of the year, including Highway Clean-Up, Calf Tour, Public Speaking, and of course lots of work with their calves.

    Elections were held, and Kristen Shaw was elected President, with Skylar Stephan as Vice President and Karleigh Brown as Secretary. Rachel Shaw is Treasurer, and both Kristen and Rachel Shaw are Club Reporters. Historians are Skylar Stephan, Jillian Knull, and Kate Harink, and the District Council Rep is Ty Harink with Dallas Cummings as a back-up. The members who will be attending District Beef Council Meetings as Club Representatives are Ty Harink and Karleigh Brown, with Kevin Cummings, Sheri Harink, and Deonne Brown as adult members. Kristen and Rachel Shaw make up the Phoning Committee, and the Social Convenors are Kate and Ty Harink, Austin and Dallas Cummings, and Kyle Knull, with Tammy Cummings as a Parent Helper. The members in charge of organizing the annual public speaking event are Chance Ewart, Evan Pohl, Rachel Shaw, Kate Harink, and Skylar Stephan, with the group being run by Sheri Harink. 

    Weigh-In will be held on October 19, 2013 at the Wetaskiwin Ag Grounds. Wetaskiwin District members will be participating in a food drive, and are hoping to beat last year’s weight in food donations. The members of the Falun 4-H club are enthusiastic for the upcoming year, and hope to have a successful season.
