This summer was very busy and successful for the Western Kings 4-H Club.
Members participated in both junior and senior tours, Camp Rankin and the light horse boot camp had good attendance and were lots of fun. Tug of War competitions were also popular.
Members are continuing to practice for the county team. The light horse group had three shows, which went very well.
Our Achievement Days were a big success, as many of our members are now preparing for Pro Show on Sept. 27-29. Pro Show is a provincial competition where the winners from a wide variety of projects compete against the 4-H members from all around Nova Scotia who have also won at their county days. This year, it will be held in Bridgewater. Everyone is invited to check out this impressive show of 4-H talent. There will be lots of displays paying tribute to the 100th anniversary of 4-H in Canada.
We would like to congratulate one of our members, Jillian Lamb, for being named Queen of the Berwick Gala Days. Nice job, Jillian.
Now that our summer is over, we are getting ready to begin our new year of 4-H. Members can also register at our October meeting which, like most months, will be held on the third Tuesday of the month.
If you want to know more about our club and the different
projects available, you can now go online to our Western Kings 4-H Club website, www.westernkings4h.weebly.com
Don’t forget that Nova Scotia 4-H members can enroll in a Personal Development Credit to receive a Grade 10 school credit, which recognizes their 4-H work. We all look forward to an exciting 4-H year.
