Boundary ‘C’ 4-H Club marks close of 2017

The Boundary ā€œCā€ 4-H Club had a great year.

By Hanna Harpur

2017 was another successful year for our club! Loads of memories were made and laughs shared. The club kicked the year off with the annual Cattle Baron’s Ball fundraiser, where the community generously supports the club by attending a dinner, dance and auction. The support we receive at this event is integral to the success of the club.

Members also participated in seminars across British Columbia and even Ottawa, learning valuable skills about leadership, agriculture and so much more. In addition, highlights were had at two fairs with many members excelling in their individual classes.

In December, the club finished off the year with a dinner and dance at the Westbridge Hall. Awards were also handed out! The Jason Elliot Memorial Award was presented to 8th year member, Alec Elliot. Year-end High Aggregates were also awarded to both senior and junior members in each of the club divisions. In addition, members received their record book scores and top books from each division were sent to a district level round of judging. A special thank-you was given to the VanKuiks, in recognition of their hard work and contributions to our 4-H club and the community.

After the dinner and awards were wrapped up, the dancing began. It was truly a boogie wonderland with members, parents and leaders all finding their groove out on the dance floor.

With one year ending, members are already preparing for the next. Beef members halter break their young steers and heifers while sheep members are anticipating spring to choose their lambs. Sewing members shop for fabric and pick out clothing patterns and horse members ride and train their horses.

We can’t wait to make some more awesome memories in 2018!
