Everyone participates in club activities and meetings.

Our president is Melissa Waldron, vice-president is Evan Buist, secretary is Jordyn Valstar, treasurer is Kyle Valstar,parliamentarian is Gary Waldron, Historians are Erin Simpson and Marlee Jaffray, reporter is Jenna Simpson, assistant treasurer is Steven Jaffray, and district council reps are Chris and Erin Simpson, and Holly and Melissa Waldron. Our general leader isMariann Valstar and assistant leader is Holly Waldron. Our beef leaders are Chris Simpson and Jason Valstar.

Our beef weigh-in was on October 18, 2015 at VJV Rimbey. There were a lot of nice looking calves. In beef we have 14 steers,four carcass, and six heifer projects. We would like to thank Wes Skeels for coming out and opening up everything for us.

December 6, 2015 was Districts fun day at the Rimbey Bowling Alley. It was lots of fun. On December 21, 2015 the club helped out with making a lunch for the FCSS volunteers. While some people were making lunch there was some people helping with the food for the food bank and also helping with the toys for the food bank. Everyone had lots of fun. It’s great to be a part of the community. Later that afternoon we had a great time in Red Deer and had a friendly game of Lazer Tag.

We had our farm tour on January 13, 2016. Everyone’s calves were looking great. So good luck on show day everyone!
