Bluffton 4-H going strong

The Bluffton West 4-H Club has started up again for the 46th year.

By Kaiden Eadie

The Bluffton West 4-H Club has started up again for the 46th year. We officially started our projects at our annual weigh-in at the Burrage vet clinic on October 4th. With 25 members in our club there was quite the variety of cattle with 23 steers, 17 heifers and 7 carcass steers.

Prior to weigh-in, we had our first meeting where we elected our club positions: Our club leader is Marian Johnson along with our assistant leaders: Andrea Falt and Dan Skeels. This is the second year for our cleaver kids program and its leaders are Racheal Hudson and Yvonne Vandenhoven. Our club president is Clinton Steeves, our vice president is Tina Vohngunten, our treasurer is Ben Trenson, our secretary is Erin Burrage, our parliamentarian is Leah Trenson, our club reporter is Kaiden Eadie, our historians are Heidi Trenson and Josie Burrage. Also Connor Falt is our junior county rep and Ben Trenson is our senior county rep.

On October 28th, we had a marketing workshop at Skeels and it was loads of fun. Thank you to everyone that showed their support last year, and we are looking forward to another great year!
