Shell Waterton donates to Pincher Creek area 4-H clubs


Justin Schoening - A representative from Shell Waterton used to come to 4-H show and sales and buy animals. They would then donate the animal back to the club to resell. This way instead of supporting one kid they supported the whole club. A couple years ago Shell decided to distribute their support differently. So Shell gave a lump sum to our district, and they have done that, every year, since. The district placed these funds in a Shell education fund and uses the money to pay for things like workshops, (demonstrations on different aspects of 4-H, for example; judging) and most recently an exchange trip to St. John’s, Newfoundland. During our exchange all twenty of us (ten Newfoundlanders and ten members from our district) met Rod Sinclair of Shell Waterton for lunch at the Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village, where he presented us a check. Our exchange would not be possible without their generosity. We really appreciate the way Shell Waterton supports 4-H, and hope they will do it for years to come.
