Foothills 4-H Club update

Erica Mackenzie, Foothills 4-H Club reporter

Here we are with a new year of 4-H and there are a lot of changes in our club. The biggest change is that along with our steer and heifer projects we welcome the Cleavers (6-8 year olds).   This program is to spark an early interest in 4-H.  Also this year some of us are going to have a sheep project ,and this also brought us some new members!

In November, once the new executive was voted in, we had a District Executive workshop to learn more about our new positions, which was VERY well attended by all the 4-Hers in the area. We completed a Community Service Event by helping the Legion with their Poppy Drive and also went to Vista Village to help decorate the seniors’ doors for Christmas. As a group we attended the Community Remembrance Day Service. Next up was weigh-in on November 22. All members came up to Stauffer Ranches to get our starting weights, 11 steers and 9 heifers weighed in. By now most of the steers and heifers have had a lot of attention. They are halter-broke, had lots of grooming done on them, and are well on their way to being the quiet boys and girls you see on show day. 

Next up for the club is speeches and presentations… Please wish us all good luck, we could always use it!
