Public speaking competition on Feb. 23 for Erskine 4-H Beef Club

On Saturday, Jan. 28, a few Erskine Beef Club members went to the Canadian Bull Congress Judging Seminar.

ERSKINE 4-H BEEF CLUB — On Saturday, Jan. 28, a few Erskine Beef Club members went to the Canadian Bull Congress Judging Seminar. There were different levels you could participate in and many workshops along with judging a group of yearling heifers. Then on Sunday, Jan. 29, Valley Ski Club in Alliance hosted the 4-H District Ski Day and again a few members participated. It was a great day to hit the slopes and to catch up with members from other clubs.

On Jan. 20 and 21, the Haustein family entered a curling team in the East Lacombe 4-H Clubs funspiel/bonspiel that was held in Clive. We had a lot of fun and came home with some cool prizes.

The 4-H Junior Winter Camp is coming up from Feb. 24-26 at the Circle Square Ranch in Halkirk and we have a few members taking part in that.

We are finishing our ice melt sales pretty quickly as well. Thanks to everyone who have supported us. If you would like a pail to help get you through the rest of winter please call Glen Morbeck at 403-742-3838 or Amanda Haustein at 403-742-6269.

For our club’s upcoming events we will have our public speaking competition on Thursday, Feb. 23, and we are all preparing for that. Last but not least we also had a club meeting this past Sunday, Feb. 5.
