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.

We hope to see you there!
