For the month of November the members and the Cleaver Kids got the pleasure of having guest speakers at their meeting.

The members had a judging workshop after the meeting, followed with their projects. Riley Sharp, a former 4-Her with lots of judging experience came to tell them the do’s and don’ts of judging.

Everyone received their project books and discussed the budget for this year. Sewing members started making pillow cases from their own fabrics. Woodworking members are getting experience with basic hand tools, and learning to build a tractor out of wood. The experienced members are working on more advanced skills with power tools. The Small Engines members started identifying parts of an engine. Sheep members went to the Gull Lake Veterinary Clinic for a bio-security workshop.Veterinary Science started looking at the basic structures of cells in a body, and how they work together.

The Cleavers had two guest speakers, Jen Blaire, and Mark Cutts. Jen Blaire is an Agricultural Reporter for the Alberta Farmer.She came to explain what it takes to be an Agricultural Reporter, and showed us that you don’t have to live on a farm to love agriculture. Mark Cutts came to teach about different types of soil. He also taught members about water filtration in sand,soil, and clay. The Cleavers were then given a tour of Stamm Dairy. “We got see how they robotically milked cows,” one of the excited kids said later.

So, overall, it was tons of fun for everyone! We are looking forward to the next events, including the Public SpeakingWorkshop and the Christmas Party!
