4-H kids will sing Christmas carols to seniors Dec. 14

Hi, I’m Emersyn and I’m Kamryn Tabler and we are the new club reporters for the 2019-20 Lakedell Light Horse 4-H Club!

We have had our first meeting on Oct. 7 at Lakedell Hall. Our club has 21 members and eight Cleavers. Our second meeting was on Nov. 4.

We discussed and voted on our executive positions: president Kate Harink, vice-president Kamryn Klatt, secretary Rae Dennis, treasurer Gracie Bachman, club historians Wyatt Volker, Cadence Crandall, Lilah Vossler and Addison McKinney, district reps Shay Heilman, Karmyn Klatt, alternate Taylor Heilman, West Central Horse Show reps Kate Harink, Makenna Tabler, social committee Aspen Fiveland, Blazen Kuefler, Reese Stone, Blakely Fiveland, Taylor Heilman, club reporters Emersyn Tabler, Kamryn Tabler, general leaders Amy Volker, Amy Belec, assistant leaders Jessica Bachman, Leslie Bachman, Kim Hughs, Nicole Heilman, Dale Klatt and Suzann Stone.

Our first Clinic was held on Oct. 19 at the Lakedell Arena. We had our first Thursday night ride on Oct. 10 with Suzann Stone. We rode again on Oct. 24 with Jill Moore.

On Dec. 14 we are going to sing Christmas carols at Seasons Retirement Home and Peace Hills Lodge. After that we are going to head back to Lakedell Hall for our Christmas party.

We are very excited to begin the new 4-H year filled with happiness and fun.

“Learn to Do By Doing!” Happy riding!
