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!
