On December 27 a few of our members prepared a meal for the Ronald McDonald House Home for Dinner program in Red Deer.

Everyone had a great time at the tobogganing party on December 29. Thanks to the VonGunten family for hosting this fun event.

The Etiquette banquet was on January 2. We learned about proper manners, table place setting and much more. Thank you to our guest speaker, Brenda Schoepp. We would also like to thank Dan and Karen Skeels for sponsoring $500 towards the supper.

On January 12 we had our public speaking. There were plenty of interesting speeches and everyone learned something new. Congratulations to the members on a job well done. Thanks to the judges for their time and opinion.  Our judges were Christine Belanger, Wilma Andersen, MaryAnn Josephison, Lysbeth Peter, Daphane Hayward, Martha Krause, Lana Curle, Harold Kenney and Heini Hehli.

Also, thanks to Teri Ormberg for her help. For junior, the placings were Tim Trenson  first, Lacey Burrage second, John Vandenhoven third and Amy Vandenhoven fourth.

In the intermediate category, Leah Trenson was first, Sylvia Trautman was second, Hanna Falt was third and Alex Stout was fourth. In the senior category Clinton Steeves was first, Ben Trenson was second, Heidi Trenson was third and Sylvia VonGunten was fourth.

Our members continue to work with their cattle as we prepare for our show and sale on May 11 and 12.
