Burn­ham 4H Fe­bru­ary club re­port high­lights a busy month

The Southwest Booster - - OPINION - SARAH NEUSTAETER

We kicked Fe­bru­ary off with our club meet­ing on Fe­bru­ary 5th. It seems far away, but plans are al­ready be­ing dis­cussed for Fron­tier Days!

Fe­bru­ary was a very cold and un­pre­dictable month, weather-wise. Un­for­tu­nately, our 4U bee hives didn’t fare very well – all the bees in our two hives died. It’s a big loss for our group, since we har­vest the honey from these hives and sell it to fund some of our ac­tiv­i­ties through­out the year. We hope to get new bees, in the spring, and carry on with that project.

Thank­fully, there was one beau­ti­ful day in the mid­dle of our school break. The 4U group took ad­van­tage of the calm, sunny day to go ice fish­ing at Lake Pel­letier. We caught many perch and had a fish fry on the ice – com­plete with home­made buns and cho­co­late cake. In the spare time, us kids went to­bog­gan­ing down the hills. There were many laughs…and a few tears, but we still had a lot of fun.

We’re look­ing for­ward to March – the South­west Saskatchew­an 4-H clubs plan to meet at Elk­wa­ter for a day of ski­ing and snow­board­ing. As well, our club will be hold­ing our pub­lic speak­ing.
