The time has now come for a new 4-H year to start!

The Winfield 4-H club has started great, with a few new members. At our first meeting, we declared all of the new executive positions. Our new general leader is Mark Schwengler, our new president is Layne Magnuson, vice president is Brandon Leeder, secretary is Cassandra Teneycke, and finally our treasurer is Cole Schwengler.

The club’s September activity was when the members went paintballing in Sylvan Lake. Everyone had a blast, and enjoyed shooting each other with paint balls. Then on September 30, the interclub (Rimbey Beef, Bluffton Beef and Winfield Beef clubs) all went to the corn maze, and I’m sure they got lost!:)

Our clubs weigh-in this year was October 16 at Garth and Rosemary Parker’s farm. We also had a potluck and meeting to follow.

On November 2, most of the members met at Alder Flats Hall for a record book and diary workshop. Our meeting for November is the 14 at the Winfield Hall.

The club will be going to the CFR on November 12, and the farm fair 4-H fun day. I think everyone is going to have a blast.

In December, the Winfield Beef Club will be serving at the senior supper in Buck Lake on Dec.3, as well as helping with the Santa’s anonymous in Drayton Valley on the 17. We all are looking forward to our Christmas party on the 19 at the Drayton Valley swimming pool.

If anyone has any questions please call our general leader, Mark Schwengler, at 780-388-0015. Edited and written by: Nicole Groeneveld and Cheyenne Schwengler, from the Winfield 4-H Beef club.
