Rimbey 4-H Club hosting online sale May 11

As 2020 still brings us its challenges, we are still working hard to learn to do by doing.

On April 5 we had our first online meeting. We talked about how we can get the word out about selling our steers. It was decided to do an online sale 2 p.m. on May 11 at www.vjvauction.com .

To replace showmanship we are doing a marketing competition, and we are also having a costume contest, all online via pictures and videos.

Our virtual Mini Show was held on April 18. There were pictures with our beef projects and also videos. This was a good way for everyone to see each other’s show animals and to hear what they are eating. We all really appreciate the time spent on putting that together so nicely.

On April 23 we had another online meeting and we discussed more about the marketing competition and the sale. We also learned more details about the Interclub Carcass steers. Our Interclub has been working endless hours to make sure the sale of all steers and other classes go as planned.

Our Cleavers have been really looking forward to showing their calves and since they cannot show this year, they have been receiving online pictures and videos of the calves. They have been creating artwork to share at our online meetings and they can dress up a pet instead of leading a calf.

We would like to thank AFSC Rimbey for sponsoring our lovely hoodies. We are looking forward to a group picture as soon as we can. Our club members are selling Holly’s Greenhouse tickets. Please contact our club if you would like to get tickets, maybe a nice gift idea for Mother’s Day?

As the spring comes and the summer blooms we all still have to stay positive and hopeful that we all stay safe and healthy through this pandemic.
