Falun East 4-H Beef Club preparing for major anniversary

Plenty of 4-H public speaking to warm up the cold weather

Hello this is Peyton Cleland reporting to you again from the Falun East 4-H Beef Club.

We held our public speaking on February 10. Our club members did a fantastic job on all their speeches. Even though the weather was cold family and friends came out to our public speaking event. Thank you to Lone Ridge Hall for allowing our club members to use it for our competition and to AltaLink for sponsoring our event.

On February 23 was our 4-H District public speaking at the Moose Hall in Wetaskiwin. Good luck to all 4-H members moving on to the Regional competition.

With all the cold weather, checking on our 4-H animals has been challenging for us all but we are all hanging in there and waiting calmly for spring to hurry up and get here. With spring on its way, it will bring our mini show in the first part of April.

Also coming in April will be a celebration of the 50th anniversary of 4-H in the Falun community. Our club will be having a tea to celebrate, date to be announced soon. We are in inviting all past, present, young and old 4-H members from the Falun area to come out and celebrate with us. Please watch the local paper and social media for the time for our tea. Hope to see you there.

Keep watching for our club reports as our show and sale is just around the corner.
