Another 4-H year is upon us that began on Nov. 18 with our first meeting. Typically our meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month, but for November that landed on the 11th, Remembrance Day. Our first meeting involved the election of officers: our new president is Blaine Harder and vice-president is Justin Kristjansson. Emily Hickson held her spot as secretary, as did our treasurer Sean Horner. New business began with deciding on a date for our first weigh day, which will be held on Dec. 7 at 1 p. m. at the Horners’ farm. A lunch and an afternoon of games and activities will follow. Our next meeting will be held Dec. 16 to discuss club committees for fundraising, bonspiel and others. We will have our Christmas party following the December meeting as well.

Our club started a new 4-H year in October. Members were welcomed and projects were picked up, including sewing, photography, welding, babysitting, Robo-Critters, looking good/feeling great, woodworking and others. We also have some new members: Danika Collette, Emille Tymchen, Savannah Giesbrecht, Justin Jeanson and Vincentte Jeanson. On Nov. 14 we elected the executive board including Emily Van De Meer as our president, Caleb Van De Meer as our vice-president, our secretary Lauren Van De Meer, Justin Jeanson as treasurer, Pascal Tymchen as club photographer and Nelleke Tichelaar as club reporter. The next meeting will be held Dec. 12 at Superstore for our Christmas party. I’m sure we’ll have lots of fun.

The 4-H calendars were divided up among families. If any members sell a new calendar, they must get the customer’s information to give to Michelle. The deadline for handing in calendars is the December meeting, with all the money collected. If a family has never purchased a community calendar before and would like to start, please contact any of the club members, parents or leaders.
Anyone still wanting to join the club may phone Michelle and Albert Rimke or Nadine Thiry. The next meeting will be held Dec. 7 at 7:30 p. m. at the Oak Lake Curling Club.
