Double Diamond 4-H Multi Club Report

Each member of the club did a great job of representing 4-H over the past year

(Due to space restrictions, we were unable to run the full 4-H report in this week's edition of the Town & Country This Week. As such, we are presenting the full report online)

It was a great year filled with lots of memories that will never be forgotten. Every one of the projects kept the members very busy by doing a variety of workshops to improve and develop new skills.    

Beef members regularly attended workshops to improve upon their judging and showmanship abilities. This was all topped off with the annual achievement day that was a terrific representation of how much the members put into their animals. 

Vet Science members learned a lot of new information regarding animals. It was a great year in which every member enjoyed. They attended a variety of workshops about many different topics such as how to dehorn a steer, floating a horse’s teeth and they also learned about the respiratory system.  

Horse members attended riding workshops each month. They had a great time doing a bunch of different activities that helped them become a more complete rider. This ended with an achievement day at Meakin’s arena. It was a fantastic time spent completing different challenges and obstacle courses. It was a great way to complete the year. 

Explore 4-H members attended a bunch of fun workshops which included cooking and baking, visiting an apiary, growing vegetables and other fun things. The members had a great time! They ended the year with their achievement day where members did a skills challenge. 

Small engines members worked on their engines all year long. It was a very good learning experience for the members. Their achievement day was a lot of fun. Their engines were judged, and they had burgers and hotdogs at the projects leader’s house. 

Members also worked on their judging throughout the year. They attended the Regional Judging Competition at the Barrhead Ag Barn. A group of members also attended the Provincial Judging Competition at Lakeland College. It was an amazing experience and hopefully a team will attend next year. 

The 2022-2023 year was completed with a banquet at Busby Hall on Aug 30. It was a fantastic time in which members received their long-awaited awards.
