In the past two months the Horsefly 4-H Club has held a practice judging rally, attended the May judging rally in 100 Mile House, run a concession at the kid’s day Horsefly follies, and participated in the May Day parade and in a garbage pick-up.

The practice judging rally was held at Sheryl Viher’s house. She supplied snacks and coffee. 

We would like to thank her for letting us use her animals to practice judging.

The practice really helped because our Horsefly Club did really well at the May judging rally and won a lot of ribbons.

Our May judging rally was in 100 Mile House. We had 100 per cent attendance but pre-clubbers had a choice to come and most also came. 

It was a sunny, beautiful day, and everything went well.  

Thank you to all the volunteers who made  this day happen. It must take a lot of work to get all the items to judge.

We would also like to thank some of our 4-H members, Katie Isaac, Annie Isaac, Gwenna Meyrick, Bethany O’Hara and Emily O’Hara who volunteered to work at the concession at the kid’s follies. They did a great job. 

Thank you to the parents who supplied goodies and things to sell.

The Mayday parade in Horsefly was so much fun. 

We all gathered at the Mormon Church with our costumes as farmers and our animals. On our float we had dogs, turkeys, chickens and a lot of 4-H kids. 

Some of the members also rode horses, walked dogs, and walked their cow/calves. 

We threw lots of candy out to the crowd and had a wonderful time. 

Thank you to Bobbi and Tim Best for providing the truck and pulling the float, thank you to Linda Bartsch for the trailer and to Ron Teppema for the hay that the kids sat on.

Our club would like to give a huge special thank you to the three corporate sponsors for donating to the Horsefly 4-H Club for garbage pick-up. 

We sectioned off the road and each family had a section from the top of Gravel Creek all the way to Horsefly Lake Provincial Park and some side roads as well.

G & S Logging, a local logging company, said they are happy to help the kids in Horsefly, and donated $250. Thank you Gary and Susie Clark.

Horsefly Realty, the local realty office in Horsefly who is one of the biggest supporters of 4-H.

Thank you Linda Bartsch.

Goldfields, an exploration company working in the Horsefly area donated $500 to our club. Thank you very much.

Of course there are a number of parents, 4-H leaders, and community members who help with the Horsefly 4-H Club so we all say thank you to them as well.
