LAKEDELL LIGHT HORSE 4-H REPORT     

    Wow it’s been a busy month for Lakedell 4-H Lighthorse club! On February 1st, we had a drill team clinic. Our thanks go out to the Shadow Riders’ 4-H club for coming out and helping us with drill team ideas and patterns. Also thanks to Kyley Denschikoff for our horse judging clinic in the afternoon.

    Then on Friday the 7th of February in Wetaskiwin, our club volunteered to help out at the JEDI, “How the West Was One” convention. We spent our night ushering, doing coat check, being runners and also having a few gags and laughs. Our club set up the coat check by donation for helping out with buying our new club shirt. In total we raised $324.40, our thanks to everyone that supported our cause. Also nearing the end of the night, our club members, leaders, and parents took a picture at the western dress up photo booth. Talk about fun! 

    Then just on Sunday, February 9th, Lakedell Lighthorse had their club annual Public speaking competition. All of the members did an excellent job and I'm sure their parents and leaders are proud of them. For seniors Brittany Lange took 1st,  Amy Belec took 2nd and Will Harink placed 3rd.   For Intermediate’s Kate Harink took 1st,  Carly Hannay took 2nd and Annalise Tremblay (myself) placed 3rd.  After the prepared speeches, impromptu’s, judges’ comments, and awards. Oh yes and let’s not forget a great lunch, we all headed home with proud smiles and helpful tips to work on for next year. A special Thank you goes out to our judges Joyce Winter, Kevin Cummings, Gilaine Porter, Brian Knull, Joan Stone & Dorothy Ungstad for helping us out.
