Sylvan Lake 4-H multi-club will be starting on Oct. 21 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 103 at École H. J. Cody High School. Parents should try to attend with their kids if possible.

Ages 9-20 are eligible to become members, but 6-9 year olds can participate as Cleaver Kids. Membership fees are $65 for the year which includes $55 for provincial fees and insurance and $10 for district fees.

The projects that we are offering in our first year are cooking and photography. Members may choose to complete one or both projects.

Required activities for the year are public speaking, highway clean-up, record book, achievement day and at least 70 per cent of the meetings which are twice a month on Mondays at 6:30.

Benefits of 4-H include public speaking skills, friendship building, self-esteem enhancement, project related skills, parliamentary procedure, leadership camps, record keeping skills and scholarship opportunities.

We currently have 17 members between the ages of 9 and 16 signed up for our first year. It is important to come to this first meeting to learn more.

If intending to join, bring a check for $65 to this meeting. Parents will be given the opportunity to complete leader screening at this meeting.
