Rimbey 4-H ready to begin season

First meeting to be held Sept. 13

The Rimbey 4-H Club is ready to get into the swing of another season.

Leader Karen Jaffray said anyone interested in joining the club should come to a meeting to be held Sept. 13 at Rimbey Nazarene Church at 7 p.m.

“Our club has increased in numbers, but this year some of our seniors are heading off to college,” she noted. “All new members (aged nine to 21) are welcome.”

The Rimbey 4-H beef and market lambs multiclub had 25 members last year.

Rimbey 4-H club is part of the 4-H multiclub show and sale held annually. The show and sale includes Rimbey, Bluffton and Winfield 4-H Clubs.

Throughout the year, club members keep busy with fundraisers and volunteer services such has working at the bingo for long-term residents at the Rimbey hospital. Recently they helped with clean up from the FCSS golf tournament. They also participate in the highway cleanup in the first part of May and, in the past, have helped at the concession at the Hoofs ‘n Horns.

They also have fun days for both leaders and members to enjoy.
