Annapolis Valley Register - - X NEWS - BY EMILEE HIRTLE Emilee Hirtle is the Western Kings 4-H Club reporter.

The Western Kings 4-H Club has some ex­cit­ing events to kick off the up­com­ing spring sea­son.

Dur­ing a re­cent club meet­ing, Kelly Clarke pro­posed a snow shoe­ing ad­ven­ture at the Woodville Trail for club mem­bers and their fam­i­lies. This would be held dur­ing the week of March break, weather per­mit­ting.

In ad­di­tion, Tammy West spoke about prac­tices start­ing soon for the club’s woods­man team and en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to come out and give it a try. Woods­man is a favourite ac­tiv­ity for many club mem­bers.
