“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.
