At our second meeting, we had our welcome back potluck supper. We met at Alder Flats Hall to have a meeting first. Austin Clarkson joined our 4-H club again, we are happy to have him back in Outdoors. Our club leader Mrs. Patten talked about key leader training and told us she has lots of new ideas. We will host an ATV safety day in the spring at Winfield. Our club collected 245 pounds of food for the Drive Away Hunger campaign, good job everyone. Thank you to all the people who helped us. It went to the Breton Food Bank.

Shelby is going to Vegas for a dance convention and she has done her solo. For leadership, she organized the welcome back supper. Her next project is the Christmas caroling and helping at district workshop day.

Outdoors did geo-caching at Twin Lakes with the Lacombe Outdoors Club for their activity in October. We used GPS units to help us find the cache. We found the cache in a spruce tree. It was a Tupperware container with lots of different things in it. Only four other groups had found it so far. We put in a pen, key chain and some 4-H stuff. It was a great activity.

After our meeting we did crafts with Joanie Pitzel. We decorated pinecones to make colorful fire starters and painted others with silver spray paint. Everyone took part. We drove to Mr. Seely’s place to have a hayride. All the kids got a chance to drive the team of horses.

We really enjoyed the ride. Thank you to Mr. Seely for taking us out. This was an Outdoors activity.

It was fun to have the whole club and families together on these activities.
