After a nice, relaxing summer the Falun East 4-H Beef Club is back with new steers and new members.

The club also had their first meeting in September when the new members got to learn more about 4-H along with the Cleaver kids who are under age members that can come, play games and learn more about what 4-H has to offer.

One of the first things on the agenda is to elect a new president! The role went to Austin Cummings. Vice-president went to Dallas Cummings, secretary of the club to Montana Harden and treasurer to Rachel Shaw. Members volunteered for other roles in the club like historian which Branson Harden, Kennedy Harden and Rachel Shaw are all now a part of.

The district council positions went to Kate and Ty Harink while beef council positions went to Rachel Shaw and Dallas Cummings. Members of the communication committee include Kate Harink and Chance Ewart. The social committee will be run by Kennedy, Branson, Cheyenna and Montana Harden, while the public speaking committee will include Andrew Rositier, Kate Harink, Carter Van Immerzeel and Rachel Shaw.

The next thing on the agenda was to discuss weigh-in which was held at the Wetaskiwin Agricultural Grounds on October 3. Members brought their projects to weigh and register along with food bank donations . The average steer weighed around 654 pounds. With all of the donations we ended up raising 423 pounds of food between our club and Rosbrier. Some of the steers may have looked small and timid but with devoted time, love and care members will have their steers calm and ready by show day in May.

Also at the meeting we discussed different activities that the club will be doing in the future. The club was fortunate to have a great previous year and are very thankful to all the sponsors who are able to help 4-H strive and succeed. The club hopes to continue this trend and hopefully have another wonderful, fun, and educational experience this 4-H season. To achieve this the members will continue to work with the calves and prepare different activities in the winter.
