4-H group holds public speaking event

Rimbey 4-H group busy

It has been a busy few months since the end of December, when we had our annual beef farm tour.

We all got on a bus and toured around to everyone’s farms to see how well everyone’s steers were growing.

On January 5 we hosted the District Judging Event when all the clubs in the district come together to practice judging various things. This year we judged heifers, goats, ladders, birthday cakes and competed in an identification activity.

Thank you to Jemstar Farms for hosting and Rimbey Evergreen Co-op for donating a birthday cake to judge.

On January 18 the lamb workshop was held at the Smith’s farm. They talked about lamb growth and health. On January 20 we had a meeting and public speaking workshop at Last West Hall where we were asked to clean up after a function there.

February 9 was our annual public speaking competition at the Nazarene Church.

Everyone in the club did an amazing job on their speeches. We also hosted the Zone Public Speaking this year, which was also held at the Nazarene Church. We’d like to thank all of the judges, MC, Timer, Teller and The Nazarene Church for helping with both of the public speaking events.

The coming months will keep all members hopping as we prepare for the show and sale in May.
