Hello fellow citizens of Williams Lake and area.

Speeches and Demonstrations for the Rose Lake/Miocene 4-H club are over.

We had a really great turnout, and I was happy to see so many of you there supporting us.

Without further ado, our first place winners are Melanie Wintjes (senior speech); Nicole Bailey (junior speech); Kimberly Davis and Jordana Wintjes (junior demonstration); Paige Sepkowski and Taya Sepkowski (senior demonstration); and last but not least, the clover buds: Kylie Davis, Katelyn French, Austin Keenan-Street, William Roberts, Heidi Van Beers, Lana Van Beers, and Trace Van Immerzeel.

Our second place winners are Cody Bailey (senior speech); Samantha Taylor (junior speech); and Brenda Van Wyck and (me) Ashley Van Wyck (senior demonstration). And our third place winners are Shaylin Leclerc (senior speech) and Elizabeth Van Immerzeel (junior speech).

Good job to all our other members on your speeches and demonstrations!

Another event that has passed is the District speeches and demonstrations.

They were held on March 8. Districts are basically where all the first and second place winners of each club come together and compete with other clubs within the district with their speeches or demonstrations.

From our club we had participants Cody Bailey, Nicole Bailey, Brenda Van Wyck and Ashley Van Wyck.

Two of our members placed starting with Cody Bailey, who placed third and Brenda Van Wyck and Ashley Van Wyck who placed first.

It was great to hear all the other clubs’ speeches; they all did a very good job.

March 8 was also another big day for our 4-H Club because it was our first community function.

The Rose Lake Miocene Club cleaned up after the Business Excellence Awards this year at the Elks Hall.

We took down posters, cleared tables, stacked chairs, and swept floors.

It was a fun event and we were glad to help out.

Here’s an update from our last meeting.

We opened with a fun game led by Ryan Roberts our club’s recreation instructor.  We also had a couple of speeches presented by three of our members.

Near the end of the meeting we had a great presentation by our swine club.

They taught the club how to judge a market swine using posters. The group took turns speaking about certain positive qualities found in a well finished market pig. Over-all we all learned a lot from their presentation.

Another thing that was introduced at the meeting is the Safety Pin contest.

The Safety Pin contest is a contest between 4-H members that are enrolled in 4-H this year.

The club members have also had the opportunity to create a safety pin design using the theme Safety First and submit it in order to win cool WorksafeBC prizes. Submissions were accepted until March 31.  For more on that contest check out
