The mem­bers and chap­er­ones of the Drumheller District 4H clubs en­joyed an ex­change with an On­tario 4H district this sum­mer. In the first part of July the lo­cal clubs hosted 4Hers from On­tario and on July 25 to Au­gust 3 they re­turned the visit. Cam­ryn and Liam McDougald were on that ex­change and Koren McDougald was a chap­er­one on the trip. They did a lot of trav­el­ling in On­tario spend­ing a day in Toronto vis­it­ing the CN Tower and at­tend­ing a Blue Jay’s base­ball game. They camped out at Lake Erie, spent a day at Lake Huron, Ni­a­gara Falls and zip lin­ing in Lon­don, On­tario, vis­ited St Ja­cob’s Mar­ket at the auc­tion near Wood­stock and vis­ited Strat­ford, On­tario. They spent some time on agri­cul­tural tours vis­it­ing dairy, goat and bee farms. Sounds like they had a great time and re­ally bonded with the 4Hers from On­tario. A won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence for th­ese young peo­ple.

Last Mon­day the Wild Pink Yon­der trail ride took place in the Wil­son and Doo­ley coulees. Don Howard was the trail boss. The ride was in sup­port of breast cancer. Nine­teen rid­ers and horses took part in the ride, sev­eral from the Ver­dant Val­ley com­mu­nity. The rid­ers en­joyed the beau­ti­ful coun­try side and beau­ti­ful weather only in­ter­rupted for a while by a short rain and hail storm. The rid­ers and or­ga­niz­ers en­joyed a bar­be­cued steak sup­per at the Stam­pede Barn.

The Ver­dant Val­ley and Dor­cas Women’s In­sti­tute had a potluck sup­per for mem­bers and hus­bands at the com­mu­nity cen­ter with ten mem­bers and hus­bands at­tend­ing on Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 24. Pat McDougald was host­ess. Next meet­ing will be at the home of Holly Guter­son on Septem­ber 14.

A cor­rec­tion from last week’s col­umn – Chad Har­den did win the Rocky Moun­tain Chuck­wagon show how­ever Luke Tournier had the most points for the 2016 sea­son over the nine shows.
