Cattle Baron’s Ball best yet!

Boundary C 4-H Club held their Cattle Baron's Ball later in April this year. Someone forgot to reserve the hall. Worth waiting for though!

The Cattle Baron’s Ball was one of the best in 22 years.

Top bid in Saturday night’s auction was made on the 4H quilt, which sold for $1,700. The quilt was made by Boundary C’s Sewing members and their leader Juanita van Kuik. The money raised at the auction will be going to help pay for club fees, the hauling of animals, clinics and other expenses.

We want to thank the buyers and all the people and businesses who contributed items for the silent and live auctions. We appreciate all the hard work of our parents and leaders who helped to organize and make the evening a success.

April has been a busy month for the Boundary C 4 H club. Four beef members went to the Prospect Steer Show in Kamloops where they learned about showmanship and participated in both weight and showmanship classes.

Ranch horse members had their branding day at Fossen’s on Saturday, April 18. About seven members brought their horses to help round up and sort the cows and calves while the members on foot opened and closed gates. Members took turns branding, vaccinating, scanning tags and pushing calves up the chute.

Also, lamb members have picked out their project lambs and look forward to working with them.

At the April 16 meeting, nine-yearolds did their speeches, and juniors and new members had instruction and judging practice in preparation for Rally Day on May 2. Members are also working on educational displays and demonstrations to be presented at Rally Day.

Best wishes to Marijka van Kuik and Adele Fossen, who will be participating in regional speak-offs in Kelowna on April 9.
