Silver Stars close ‘interesting year’

The Stettler Silver Stars 4-H Club has had a busy couple of months.

The Stettler Silver Stars 4-H Club has had a busy couple of months.

In May, we held our Farm Fair Weekend with the Stettler Ag Society and we also held our achievement day.

Achievement day was actually two full days of riding and learning with clinician Marty Gardner of Flattop Horsemanship. We had lots of fun and learned things to help us have a better partnership with our horses.

That took us into June and 4-H rodeo season began with a two-day rodeo hosted by the Halkirk Hicks. It was a great weekend, and the Stettler Silver Stars had fun riding, camping and meeting new people.

Last weekend, we hosted our own one-day 4-H rodeo. We had a lot of entries and, again, a lot of fun. We learned a lot about setting up a rodeo, too.

Thanks to all of our 4-H and community volunteers who supported our rodeo.

Next weekend is the final 4-H rodeo for our district. It’s another two-day event, and it’s hosted by Neutral Hills 4-H Club.

It has been quite a year, and we would like to offer special thanks to all of the community members who supported our club this year, in sponsorship, fundraisers and recently as volunteers for our rodeo.

Thanks for teaching us along the way.

And finally, we would like to thank our very dedicated leaders: Becky Baltimore, Jennifer Burks, Davis Cox, Connie Cox, Toni Dorchester and Dwayne Grover. Without them, there’s no way we could have had such a full and interesting year.
