Happy Holidays from the East Ponoka 4-H Beef Club

Our club gained some new members this year.

by Tasha Kjenner

Our club gained some new members this year. There are now 14 members, our leader Monica Harvey and three assistant leaders.

We are very excited to be starting another year. We had our weigh-in at VJV Auction on Oct. 14.

One of our fundraisers for the year was held on Nov. 2. We held a Fall Clean-Up for the community and collected used tires, oil filters and batteries to be recycled.

As a club, we also attended the Family 4-H event at the Farmfair at Northlands in Edmonton, followed by the evening performance at the Canadian Finals Rodeo. We are working with our steers and female projects and will be having our mid-season calf tour at every member’s farm on Dec.30.
