One of the big events to start off the year was the multi species judging on Dec. 1 which was held at the Rimbey Agriplex.

About 37 people judged heifers, hay and horses.

We also guessed various items ranging from items you would find in the vet clinic to older objects like berry pickers.

Judging winners for the juniors were Tim Trenson, Nicole Groenveveld and Katie Hudson.

For the intermediate group Sylvia Trautman, Hanna Falt and Leah Trenson were the winners.

For the seniors Ben Trenson, Heidi Trenson and Amy Trenson won.

Thank you to Luc and Marian Trenson and their family, Parker Farms and the Rimbey Vet Clinic for a total of $300 in sponsorship.

On a chilly Jan. 4, we had our district fun day at the Usona Hall. About 36 members participated in calf sled racing, snow painting, stick hockey, curling and cookie decorating.

Thank you, Rick Shaw for the Usona Hall usage.

Each club has done club pubic speaking. Zones took place Feb. 23.

Meanwhile everyone is also working on their 4-H projects and having a great 4-H year.
