We had our beef weigh-in October 5, 2014 at Sekura Livestock Rimbey. Thank you for allowing us to use your scale and Thank you to Cindy Rose for coming to unlock the Auction Mart and helping us run the scale. Thank you for your time! We saw lots of great looking calves. Let’s hope winter is kinder on us this year! Good luck Beef Members!
On October 18, Rimbey Feeds hosted a 4-H feeding workshop. Vince Gabert and Tyson Lybbert put together an awesome presentation for us. The 4-H Feeding Handbook will be very helpful! Thank You to Gary and Joanne Marek for hosting this presentation.
Our first Cooking class was on October 23, at Rimbey Jr/Sr High School in the foods kitchen. We are really looking forward to see what Michelle has in store for us!
Our first Crafts class was on October 18, at Crafts and Chat. We met Arlene at our first meeting and it sounds like she has lots of fun things planned for us. At our first craft meeting we made necklaces that also can be bracelets. Thanks Arlene it was fun!
As you can see the Rimbey 4-H Club has been busy!
We have been asked again to deliver phone books in the town of Rimbey. Please watch for us mid-November.
