You might with Lakedell 4-H Light Horse cash raffle

Happy New Year!

On Jan. 6 the Lakedell Light Horse 4-H Club had our first meeting of 2020.

On Dec. 14, 2019 the Lakedell Light Horse headed to Wetaskiwin to sing carols. We stopped by Peace Hills Lodge and Seasons Retirement Home. The whole club was able to come and we spread a lot of holiday cheer.

After we finished singing, we went to Lakedell Hall for our Christmas party. At our Christmas Party we played some games, had a potluck supper and a gift exchange. We also watched the movie Elf. It was a lot of fun!

For one of our fundraisers this year we are doing a 50/50 cash raffle, you can win up to $5,000! The tickets are $5 each. Please contact one of our members if you are interested in purchasing a ticket. The draw will take place on Feb. 9, 2020, which is our Public Speaking Day.

At our public speaking event members prepare a three to five minute prepared speech. They will also have to deliver an impromptu speech for one to two minutes. Our public speaking takes place at Lakedell Hall. We would love to see you there!

We did not ride in December because of the cold weather. We are planning on riding in January if then weather is nice. We are planning to ride Jan. 9 and Jan. 23 for our two Thursday night rides as well as Jan. 11 for our clinic. Hopefully the weather will be nice!

“Learn to do by doing!” Happy riding!
