Another fun few months in 4-H!!! In January at Hockey Day in Gull Lake, the Clairbank 4-H Club helped clean up breakfast, we then served lunch and cleaned off the tables after lunch. A Senior boys curling team from our club (Braiden Leppa, Brayden Myers, Tyler Myers and Quentin Bucheler) represented our District #9 at the Regional 4-H Curling in Eston and won 1st place! They then went on to represent the South West Region at the Provincial 4-H Curling Bonspiel in Tisdale and placed 4th. Good job! In February we all had fun curling together where we learned to curl and had a few fun games together. We had public speaking in March at the Elk’s hall. Everyone did very well and I think that everyone enjoyed listening to the speeches.
In April our club got together to make wire tree sculptures with Trea Jenson from Eastend. It was funded by FCC Club Fund and gave us a chance to try something different and new. On Mother’s day, after our meeting, we planted geraniums, snapdragons and petunias in one community planter box and potato sprouts in another. Other upcoming events will be Achievement day, our club’s wind up at Crescent Point Pool and cleaning up at the Elks steak supper (June 21).
Clairbank Multiple 4-H Achievement Day is on June 9 in Webb beside the Hall at 1:00. Everyone is welcome to come and see our Beef and Light Horse shows and Crafts and Woodworking displays. There will be supper to follow.
