Hey guys, it’s me again, Raeanna Schmidt, to tell you about the month of December in my club, Lakedell 4-H Beef club!

Our club participated in many different activities this month. Some members of our club participated in wrapping presents with the Pigeon Lake Santa’s Elves for children and families who can’t afford them.  This took place at the Ma-Me-O Beach community hall on December 19.

I’m sure many families were happy this Christmas.  A bit before that on December 4th, our club decorated a tree to be auctioned off for charity. Our theme this year was a workman with a hard hat, boots and some work gloves. It looked amazing!

The next week at our potluck meeting, a representative from STARS air ambulance came and talked to our club. They came because the money from our club calf (raised by the entire club) is going towards STARS.

On December 4 the UFA of Ponoka hosted an evening of 4-H learning. This was for many clubs around the area. We learned about credit, a vet came and taught us about animal health, we talked about public speaking and we made rope halters. It was a very fun night!

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our annual beef supper on Friday, February 12, 2016. Tickets for sale soon! Well, that wraps it up! Our club had a busy and fun month!   Happy New Year!

 

 

Coal Lake Light Horse 4-H December report

This month we had an exciting month. We went to Northlands for our Christmas party where we had a very tasty supper and watched 10 races. We got to sponsor a race and had our picture taken with the winner.

We had our regular rides and worked on our techniques at the arena. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
