This month we started off with our district show on April 16. There were some nice looking steers and heifers there. It took place at the Enerplus building in Hay Lakes. Clubs from the district that attended were our club and Strawberry Multi Club. Everyone did a fabulous job with their animals and it was a good opportunity to show our animals. Good job everyone!

This Saturday May 14 is our highway cleanup. It was cancelled last Saturday due to some complications with the Fort McMurray fire. Our club will be picking right outside of Leduc on Highway 39 so be sure to look out your window when you are passing by. After that will be our community service which will be taking place at the Cloverlawn hall. We will be doing a great job cleaning up the Clover Lawn hall.

Our final event of the 4-H year is our annual achievement day, which will be held at the Sobeys arena in Leduc. The show is at 1 p.m. and our sale will be at 7 p.m. There will be an amazing selection of cattle so make sure to bring your wallet with you. We will also be selling raffle tickets to sell our club calf so make sure to purchase some of them as well. That’s all for now!
