BY MATTEA WRIGHT AND TEGAN MOFFATT

Red Deer West 4-H Beef Club had another great start to its year with 31 members and great club and assistant leaders.

We had our weigh-in on Nov. 2nd at P. Quentaine & Sons, with 12 heifers, 14 carcasses, 15 cow/calf pairs, and 31 market steers. It made for a busy morning. Wow, 72 projects in all!

This year some of our members went to archery on Dec. 7 as half of our Christmas party. The other half was held on Dec. 9th with a Chinese gift exchange and potluck supper. Our club collected food bank donations that will be taken to Red Deer Food Bank this week in support of the 100th anniversary of 4-H.

Our club members will be preparing for public speaking on Feb. 2nd at 10 a.m. with presentations on Feb. 13th at 6 p.m., both at Ridgewood Hall. It will be open to the public — please come, you won’t be disappointed.

We would like to say a big thank you to ATB Financial Sylvan Lake for their generous donation of $1,000 to our club. We would also like to thank the community for your continued support.

We are looking forward to another great year.
