Alder Flats 4-H Multi Club Report

We had our January 4-H meeting at the Wood’s house. We had lunch with chili, buns, salad and cookies. Everybody enjoyed the meal and then we had our meeting.

We didn’t go Christmas caroling because of the weather. It’s too bad it was so cold, maybe next year.

We got new 4-H shirts and some of us got hoodies. They are brown and we think they look great. We will wear them for all district and regional events. We got compliments about the shirts at the District Workshop Day.

For the cell phone recycle boxes, most are done. Please help us recycle them and drop off old cords and phones at Smith Hardware, the Winfield School, BMC School, Seely’s General Store and the Village Market.

Our public speaking will be held on Feb. 21 at the Winfield Recreation Centre. Shelby will be organizing this. Congratulations to Shelby for winning in the Record Book Competition.

Our safety moment was about tobogganing. There were lots of good ideas. Mrs. Reid told us about games on the 4-H website.

Project reports:

Creative Options – Shelby’s dance is finishing up her routines. They are looking for costumes and don’t know any competition dates.

Outdoors – Erin reported that we had fun going to the Thunder’s game in Drayton Valley. We went skating with the players and met some of them. They were from all over including eastern Canada, Quebec, Calgary and Edmonton. They helped us to skate and some talked to us. We had supper then went home.

After the meeting, we went to Mr. and Mrs. Cripps’ place to go tobogganing. The weather was cold but better than it had been all week. We had lots of fun. This was our outdoors activity for January. Thank you for letting us toboggan on your hill.
