Burnham 4H February club report highlights a busy month
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.
