4-H youth learn valuable skills

Hello fellow citizens of Williams Lake and area from the Rose Lake Miocene 4-H Club.

Brenda Van Wyck

and Jaydan Taylor

Hello fellow citizens of Williams Lake and area.

I, Brenda Van Wyck, and my assistant Jaydan Taylor, are the new club reporters for the Rose lake Miocene 4-H club.  To kick things off I’d like to invite kids all ages from six to 21 years old to join 4-H this year.

As a 4-H member you learn cool things like how to fundraise, how to raise an animal, how to present a speech, how to judge market animals and projects, how to advertise, leadership skills, citizenship skills, life skills, and much more.

As a third-year member of 4-H, I can tell you that this is not only the coolest organization, it is also the most interesting; and that’s coming from a 17 year old.

Another thing about 4-H is that it’s not only for the kids; we welcome adults and parent volunteers to come join the 4-H community as well.

Jobs for parents can be as little as giving input and knowledge out at club meeting to as big and important as being small group leaders or even club leaders.

There is always so much to do in 4-H there is never a dull moment.

That’s why this year we’re striving to make it one of the best 4-H years yet. Remember, the more the merrier.

Have I convinced you yet?

If not maybe I should give you a list of projects you can take on in 4-H: Market steer, market lamb, market swine, small engines, foods, photography, dog, horse, rabbit, adopt a grandparent, cavy, poultry, gardening, wool craft, leather craft and so forth! I recommend 4-H to everyone because of all the personal benefits it has and all the learning experiences it gives.

Want to join? No trouble, just go to this website: http://www.bc4h.bc.ca and find the club nearest you.

 

Any questions? If so feel absolutely free to check the BC 4-H website posted above.  I really hope to see some new faces this year!
