Hi, my name is Paige Whalen and I am the club reporter for the Rollyview 4-H Dairy Club. We have had a great year so far! We have 11 members and two Cleaver Kids, and this is the largest our club has been for quite awhile. Our executive is as follows: President – Tyson Rietveld; Vice President – Lee Morey; Secretary – Emily Martin; Treasurer – Emily Vos and Club Reporter – Paige Whalen.
In November we had a fun day at Laser Tag in Edmonton followed with pizza and a meeting. In December, we had our judging meeting at the Rietveld’s and after lunch we got to go skating on their rink. We started 2016 with a public speaking meeting at the Martins.
On January 29 we had our public speaking competition at the Cloverlawn Hall, which everyone did a great job!! I was lucky as myself and Emily Martin got to go onto the next level – Districts.
In February, our club had a fun outing to an Oil Kings game. March was our pedigree/dairy science meeting at the Delanges. In April we had our clipping clinic/meeting at Schrijvers. Our club did Highway clean-up in May, a judging meeting in conjunction with the NAHC, and a showmanship clinic at Delanges in June. We have been busy!
Our achievement day will be on July 5 in Hay Lakes at 11 a.m., and then we will go as a club to provincials from July 12-15!
