Crestomere 4-H multi-club Achievement Day

Celebrating the Crestomere 4-H multi-club’s busy year

The Crestomere Multiclub held their 10th annual Achievement Day on May 27 at the Lacombe Agricultural Society Grounds.

We started out the day with judging of display boards from the Outdoor Living, Woodworking, Canine, Foods, and Small Engines projects.

Following that was the sheep show of market lambs, ewe lambs, yearling ewes with lambs, and showmanship. Everyone did a great job preparing the night before with washing and clipping their sheep, so they were bright white all day long.

Thankfully we had nice weather because after the show we invited everyone for a potluck lunch and ate outside. Following lunch the Small Engines senior project group showed off their Dune Buggy which they had worked on all year. Then the canine show started and they had an obedience and showmanship class. Afterwards they decided to entertain the crowd with some jumping.

The market lamb sale followed the canine show and then we presented some special awards. UFA representative Braeden Merril presented the Platinum Award of Excellence to Isabell Stamm for her many years of involvement in 4-H. Mackenzie Gillard was presented with a Bronze Award of Excellence and Dawn Marie Gillard was presented with a 10 Year Leader Award as well.

Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers: UFA, AltaLink, and all other official 4-H Sponsors for making our year fantastic! Overall it was a great day with lots of great projects and we are excited to see what next year will bring!
