The Stampede Parade is approaching quickly and the Rose Lake/Miocene Club is very pleased to hear that the parade theme this year is 4-H.
We are so excited to start coming up with ideas and begin decorating our float!
The 4-H June judging rally is taking place this Saturday, June 14 at the Williams Lake Stockyards starting at 9:30 a.m.
Members who didn’t make the May rally will have to attend this Saturday’s rally or find another rally to attend in order to continue in this season’s events.
A big event for the beef members of the Rose Lake/ Miocene 4-H club is the Cow Camp happening on June 21-22.
Cow Camp is a camp that our beef leader, Connie-Lynn Redl holds at the Miocene hall for all the beef members in our club.
The beef members get to participate in hoof trimming and other exercises with their cattle project.
It will be another fun, educational event.
Our Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H Club met last on May 14.
Thank you to all supporters who purchased Tupperware and helped us to meet our fundraising target.
A good job was done by the photography group in putting together a photography demonstration at our meeting.
They talked about crosshairs of a picture and where the main focus should be in a photograph.
They had a great poster and a good comparison between correctly and incorrectly placed elements in a picture.
On National Beef Day, May 29, our club sold hamburgers at Save on Foods with proceeds being split between the new Rob Starr Scholarship and our 4-H club.
Our club also held a Strong Start Petting Zoo May 30 in Kiwanis Park.
Then on May 31 we held a work bee at the Miocene hall.
The May judging rally in 100 Mile House was super fun and educational.
Despite the cold weather, we all did our best to judge each class with full effort.
This event took place at the 100 Mile House Agri-Plex. All the different judging classes were placed in the area in a big circle.
We were each given four judging cards with different judging classes; one of which was our individual market project.
We were given 20 minutes to judge each class and hand in our judging cards to the class leader. At the very end, all of the class leaders gave their placing for each class. All in all, this event was a success.
