One of the big events to start off the year was the multi-species judging on Dec. 1, which was held at the Rimbey Agriplex. About 37 people judged heifers, hay, and horses. We also, guessed various items- ranging from items you would find in the vet clinic to older objects like berry pickers.
Judging winners were- Jr’s 1st- Tim Trenson, 2nd Nicole Groeneveld, 3rd Katie Hudson.
For the intermediates 1st- Sylvia Trautman, 2nd- Hanna Falt and 3rd- Leah Trenson. For the Sr’s 1st-Ben Trenson, 2nd-Heidi Trenson and 3rd- Amy Trenson.
Also, a huge “Thank you” to Luc and Marian Trenson and their family, Parker Farms and the Rimbey Vet Clinic for a total of $300 in sponsorship!
On a chilly Jan. 4, we had our district fun day at the Usona hall. About 36 members participated in calf sled racing, snow painting, stick hockey, curling and cookie decorating.
