Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H Club reviews year

Hey all, this year was a full and exciting year for all of us 4-H members.

Hey all, this year was a full and exciting year for all of us 4-H members.

We started the year off in January for registration. Following that was what we all dreaded – speeches.

We had our club speeches in February and had some really amazing speakers who went on to the district speech contest.  From there, we even had a member go on even farther!

Well, we had our monthly meetings which are every second Wednesday of the month. We meet and talk about what’s going on and get to meet with our project leaders and talk about our projects and how they are doing.

At Easter every year we have our petting zoo at Boitanio Mall.

Everyone can come and look and pet all the animals they want for just a small donation.

We do a variety of fundraisers throughout the year to raise money for our club to pay for things that the club needs or to replace certain things that we have.

Things such as ribbons, clippers, buyers’ gifts, show shirts and show harnesses.

On the Father’s Day Sunday, the Miocene community has a breakfast, lunch and barbecue dinner with an auction in the afternoon. Our club helps with the auction and the lunch. This is all held at the Miocene Community Hall.

In June, our beef members get together and have a cow camp, where members learn how to bathe, blow dry, clip and show their steers and female beef projects.

The members usually enjoy this and it is a fun time for everyone.

At Stampede, our club puts a float in the Stampede parade. Every morning of Stampede we also do the grand stand clean up. So we clean up the grand stands after all the rodeo performances.

In late July, we have our club achievement day. This is when all the members get together at the Miocene Community Hall at the barn, and we show our animals as a club.

This usually is a spread of two days because we have so many members and so many projects. This year it took us four days, because there is no arena at the barn for the horse kids to show their horses, so they go into town at the Williams Lake stockyards.

Photography was done on a Wednesday night because we had so many photography kids and not enough time on the Saturday to do it.

After all this, it’s the time all the kids look forward to all year, the Williams Lake and District 4-H Show and Sale.

This year it was held from August 17 to 22.  Most of the 4-H families camp at the stockyards so the kids are there to take care of their animals.

This year our club did really well, coming out with the many winners from a lot of projects. Then, the Wednesday night was the sale and the wrap up of the show and sale.

Our club would like to thank everyone who came out to the show and sale. And thank all our sponsors for the trophies and most of all, all the buyers who came out and purchased one or more sale projects. Without your support this would not be possible.

Our last club event will be our awards banquet on Oct. 20. We are having a dinner, awards and then cake auction, followed by a game planned for the club.

Projects of the Rose Lake Miocene 4-H Club members this year were horse, sheep, swine, beef, photography, foods, dog, cloverbuds, small engines, and rabbit.

In the past we have had gardening and poultry.

This year we will be looking for new leaders. If anyone is interested in being a leader or joining 4-H you can contact our main leader Marty at 778-412-4122.  Our first meeting of the year will be in January.
