We attended the community Remembrance Day Ceremony on November 11th as well as participated in The Parade of Lights on the 20th of November. November 21st was our Weigh-In Day and had a meeting to follow. This year we have 13 steer projects, 7 female projects, 6 market and ewe projects as well as a Cleaver program.
On the 5th of December next to the Legion, we grilled burgers and sausages to fundraise for the local Food Bank to help fill Christmas Hampers. Thanks to the great support! We rose close to $1000 for a great cause.
We had our meeting on December 10th, and our Christmas Party at The Horseshoe Pavilion on December 12th.
This 4-H year is off to a great start and we are looking forward to the rest of it!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
