4-H Awards Night approaching

Our club held its Achievement Day event on July 11. We had a trail ride at the beginning of the day, with activities to enjoy along the route. The members were divided up in three groups, and with each member receiving either a red, blue, or white t-shirt depending on how many points their group earned in the activities on the trail ride.

On Aug. 1, our club participated in the Big Valley parade. The parade followed a route through the village where many of the inhabitants waited patiently for the show to begin. We would like to thank all of the people who helped organize the parade, so that our riders could have such a unique experience with their horses.

The end of the 4-H year has come as if it was imitating a spooked horse galloping towards its herd of change, new adventure and promise of the future. The year has gone by so fast. It seems like the other day our club was holding the first meeting of the year, instead of anticipating the last.

One of the 4-H requirements for the end of the year is our scrapbooks recording this past year’s events, and our members’ record books. Awards Night is approaching, (no date known as of today); at this event, our members have the opportunity to be recognized for their accomplishments and efforts throughout the year. When a 4-H member has acquired the proper amount of diary (4-H only) points, they can be awarded a bronze, silver, gold, and platinum award.

The club would like to thank everyone who has sponsored us or shown interest in our club throughout the year. I would like to thank you for reading about the club’s activities in your local news flyer or paper. With promise of a wonderful new year for our branch of 4-H, we hope to be reporting our adventures to you again soon.
