Crestomere 4-H Multi-Club report

Club report for Jan. 11

We held our Christmas party at Crestomere School on Dec 15, 2019. We had a gift exchange and then went skating and sledding.

On Jan 11, 2020 we held a meeting at Crestomere School. We had a Public Speaking workshop after the meeting and then broke off into the different project groups.

Sheep

The sheep group learned about biosecurity in their sheep farms and designed their own sheep operations. They also answered sheep trivia questions.

Sewing

The sewing group learned how to thread their sewing machines. They practised straight stitch and how to sew more complicated shapes. They made little pillows with felt clouds on them.

Woodworking

First years built toy semi trucks. Second years continued to work on mallets, then started a mini catapult. Third years continued to chisel out wooden bowls. Fourth year started to make laptop desks.

Small Engines

The small engines group has taken apart their machines and parts are ordered. They will start putting their machines back together when parts come in.

Advanced Foods

The advanced foods group learned different cooking methods and cooked a dish of beef stroganoff, noodles, and mixed vegetables.

Outdoors

The Outdoors group went to Lakedell curling rink and learned some basic skills from their leader. Cleavers Cleavers made a day and night scenery with a paper plate. After they discussed the basics of public speaking, and then went outside to toboggan.

We will be having are next meeting at Lincoln Hall on Feb 8, 2020.

Our Spaghetti Supper Fundraiser was held at Lincoln Hall on January 25, 2020. It was a great success. All proceeds raised go towards Achievements Day which is on May 30, 2020.
