On Oct. 4 we held our first meeting of the new 4-H season. We held our elections and elected our executives and they are as follows: president, Kayla Dueck; vice president, KJ Haggkvist; secretary, Tennessa Merrideth; treasurer, KJ Haggkvist; club reporter, Tash Sierpinski; district council reps, Andrew Sample and Tash Sierpinski; and last but not least, club historian is Andrew Sample.

Club Leader this year is Laurie Montgomery; assistant leaders are Lori Sierpinski, Rhonda Merrideth and Kevin Haggkvist . Project leaders are Elaine Johnson, Laurie Montgomery, and Sharon Ferguson when needed.

We have nine members with four new members this year. At our meeting we decided to have our club rides on the third Monday of the month at the Calnash Ag Event Centre and club meetings will be on the first Thursday of the month at the ag event centre.

On Oct. 13 we held a bottle drive fundraiser. The club would like to thank everyone who donated their cans/bottles etc. to our club. The money raised from this fundraiser will help pay for upcoming club rides, clinicians etc.

We held our club’s first ride on Oct 15. On Oct 28 we held a record book and diary workshop so new members could see how to fill out their books and last year’s members filled out their diaries properly.

A big thank you goes out to the Calnash Ag Event Centre for their support with our club.

This is going to be a fun-filled, exciting 4-H season and we are looking forward to getting our butts in our saddles and bonding with our trusty mounts and developing new friendships.

I will leave you all with this famous quote: “No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle.” –Winston Churchill
