Ponoka East beef 4-H club report

On Sept. 20 Ponoka East beef 4-H assembled for its first meeting. Five families attended. One family was absent. We elected the offices of club leader, president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer/adult adviser. We also have committees. We discussed dates, venues, and numerous other topics. Proper social distancing was in order as well as sanitizer at every table.

On Oct. 6 Ponoka East beef 4-H went to the Forest Home Cemetery for its first community service project. The Royal Canadian Legion Branch No. 66’s Candlelight Vigil was held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 6. Students from Ponoka Secondary Campus participated as well. All participants were made to light electric tealights and place them on the graves of fallen soldiers. Then a legionnaire recited a pledge followed by a youth pledge from one of the participants. Finally all participants retrieved their tealights.

On Oct. 12 Ponoka beef 4-H did the weigh in. All members brought their project animals and had them weighed, tagged, and given shots. VJV provided the use of the facilities and Ponoka Vet Clinic provided vaccinations and supplies. After weigh in, members went for a meeting. We discussed additions to the agenda followed by treasurer and secretary reports. We discussed the subjects of fundraising, insurance, and numerous others. Finally we discussed committee dates as well as new business.
