Hussar 4H update
The Hussar 4H Multi-Club was busy with a number of events throughout March and April.
District speak-offs were held on Saturday, March 12, at the Strathmore Civic Center. Junior members Kylie Bishop and Jason Slemko participated, as well as Katie Taubert and Erin Slemko. Jason won first and Kylie won second, and they both moved on to regionals. Way to go! Jayden Nail did a great job as the emcee for the junior group. The Regional speak-offs were on Saturday, March 19, at the Strathmore Civic Center. Jason and Kylie both spoke very well, and Jason won third place. Good job! Regional Fun Day was on Saturday, April 16 at the Strathmore Civic Center. Several junior and intermediate members from our club participated, with senior members organizing and running the events. There were hamster balls, human tic tac toe, a giant bouncy castle, and more events, with a delicious pizza lunch afterwards.
District Fun Day was on Saturday, April 23, at Corey and Joel Sandum’s farm. Most members from the Hussar club attended. There was paintball, burgers, and hotdogs. Thank you to the Sandums for hosting and setting up this event.
The Nifty Knots Craft Club is currently working on a knitting project. They have decided that the sewing camp will be on July 4-8.
Mini show was on Sunday, April 24, at Barry and Leeann Kaiser’s farm. There was a very informative grooming presentation by Keltey Whelan. The senior members helped the intermediate and junior members lead their calves around the barn, then a lunch of hotdogs was served and the hungry kids dug in. Thank you Kaisers for hosting the mini show.
The Beef Club would like to invite everyone to our Show and Sale! It will be held at the Hussar Arena on Sunday, May 29. The show will start at 10:00 am, and the sale at 3:00 pm. We have 37 calves that will be shown as well as a fundraiser calf. We are all excited for the opportunity to showcase the time and effort we have put into raising our steers. We hope to see you there!
The club would like to thank Janet Yule for doing the Buyer’s Books this year. Beef package raffle tickets are currently available from 4H members or at the sale.
