On Dec. 21, we worked on getting all the boxes ready for the Blessed Pantry. Thank you to all who donated money or food to the hamper, our 4H club also donated $250 to the hamper. Some members are now looking forward to our 4H curling bonspiel when they slid to Clive from Jan. 29-30 for a fun couple of days. We are also getting ready for our Public Speaking competition, which is held in Feb., and March for those who advance. This year we are hosting the Zones Public Speaking as well. Good time to start practicing those impromptus; 4H friends.

A very exciting weekend is also coming our way, as we have been invited to Remington Cattle Ranch in Delvonita, Alta. We are going to tour the feedlot and see their working operation. They have a cow/calf operation and are working with Black Angus. It is also possible that we will stop in Olds to see the Olds College on the way. We will leave early Thursday morning and return Saturday afternoon. Good thing the teachers have a convention coming up, because I tried to get our leader to give us some time off from school, but he would not let us have that.
