The Rosebrier 4-H Beef Club has started a new year with 20 members. We have even added a Cleaver program with five future 4-H members. We met for our first meeting on September 18 and elected our executives as follows:
President- Karson Mathieu, Vice President- Seanna Shantz, Treasurer- Jake Gusse, Secretary- Rachel Nelson.
We held another meeting on October 10 and discussed our project weigh in which was held at the Wetaskiwin Ag Grounds on October 14. There were some great steer and heifer projects. We collected a food bank donation along with the Falun East club, hoping the donation would weigh as much as one of our steer prospects. We managed to collect 446 lbs of food for the Wetaskiwin Food Bank.
Brentridge Ford invited our club to sell burgers and hot dogs as a fundraiser at their 30th anniversary. They even gave us a generous donation afterwards! Thank you Brentridge Ford! We will be selling Arber Greenhouse gift cards for $25 as another fundraiser. Please contact a member or one of our leaders if you would like to purchase a gift card to support our club. Dayle-(780)781-5209 or Calvin (780)360-5408.
Our next meeting is Nov 13 where we will be filling Samaritans Purse Shoeboxes to send to children in third world countries.
