And we’re off! The Lakedell Lighthorse Club has re-united for the 2014-2015 season. We have come to use our heads for clearer thinking, our hearts for greater loyalty, our hands for larger service, and our health for better living for our club, our community and our country.
The first time our club got together this year was on September 20. We went to the Blackfoot Grazing reserve for a trail ride. It was only supposed to be a four hour ride, but ended up being a 27 km, 6 hour ride, but it was definitely worth it! The fall colours were beautiful!
We had our elections and free ride on October 4th and our first club meeting on October 6th. Frank Nesvadba is our president and Emily Gartner is the vice-president. Cobie Snellen is the secretary and Will Harink is the treasurer. We have a great year in front of us with 6 new members and 10 Cleaver Kids.
One of our community service projects for the year was painting the new outdoor arena fence at the Lakedell Ag. Society. The new outdoor arena fence looks great with a new bright blue coat of paint.
Our first clinic of the year was on October 19 which was our Assessment Clinic with Susann Stone. We covered lots of our goals on this day and our new members got off to a great start.
This is just the beginning of a great year…more activities, more friends, more fun and more learning. With the guidance of our general leader, Tim Belec, and our assistant leaders Kyley Denschikoff, Sheri Harink, Joan Miller, Leanne Snellen, Kim Dennis and Teresa Thompson, we are off into a great, successful 4-H year!
