Our Sylvan Lake 4-H Multi-Club held its first meeting and elections on Oct. 6.

Our executive for this year includes: President Kalis Currie; Vice-President Jessica Routhier; treasurer Kyah Poitra; secretary Megan Routhier; and club reporters Anwyn Rubletz and Aliyah Poitra. Members also include Courtney Hache and Damien Baylis, and our Cleaver Kids are Austin Routhier, Cole Baylis and Kailen Poitra.

The projects that we have chosen to explore this year include crafts and foods. We also have a couple of members interested in a canine project. Next year we are hoping to find someone who would be interested in helping us offer a small engines project, as we have quite a bit of interest in it. If you know someone who could volunteer for a couple of hours a month, please email Alana Routhier at arouthier@chinooksedge.ab.ca.

Our second leader, who is quite wonderful, is Kendall Currie. We are so fortunate to have her commitment and enthusiasm. If anyone else is interested in getting involved, please contact us as soon as possible.

We meet Mondays at 6:30 p.m. (first Monday – business meeting, third Monday – crafts project, and fourth Monday – foods project). We are done by 8 p.m. and usually enjoy a snack.

At our second meeting on Nov. 3, we were presented with a donation from the Legion for $500 by Steve Dills. We are so thankful for the support.

We set dates for our Christmas party playing laser tag on Dec. 5, and our public speaking competition on Feb. 1, 2015. We are planning on participating in the Santa Claus Parade as well.

We did a bottle drive on Nov. 1 and were able to earn over $200 in support of our club activities.

We volunteered at Bethany on Nov. 15 to help with Bingo and Happy Chefs, where we learned to make bread pudding (the recipe was called ‘You’re pudding me on’).

On Nov. 17, we made Christmas trees out of hangers. It was so much fun! We had six hangers each! We attached them all together, then we had a small box of Christmas tree lights that we taped on. Next we had some garland that we wrapped around the hangers. We all oohed and aahed as we watched the Christmas trees light. It was so beautiful!

Last Sunday we did the Rotary Skate-a-thon. Every one that came got a small piece of paper that counted by fives all the way up to 100, so whenever we did five laps, we came to the side and a few Interact members would mark our card.

We had to get a donation for our Skate-a-thon. A great thanks for everyone who donated some money for our 4-H club.
