  • Western Valley 4-H Report For July And August 2023

    Zora Holt, For the Courier|Aug 30, 2023

    On July 23, part of the Western Valley 4-H Club attended Fort Peck Summer Theatre’s production of Matilda and swam in the Dredge Cuts afterwards. The only members who actually came were Michael Ketchum, Linden Holt, and myself. Matilda was brilliant, and anyone who didn’t get a chance to see it sorely missed out. Sewing Camp was July 30. Although our club was hosting, the only members who attended were Linden and I. We had some difficulties, as the people we thought were helping never sho...

    The Western Valley 4-H Club held our May meeting and annual Theony Cemetery clean-up on May 19. Michael Ketchum, Linden Holt, Cooper Albus, Broc McColly, and I were the only members able to make it. LaMae and Steve Lacock joined us and fed us after the clean-up. Historically, the cemetery has suffered from a cactus infestation, but over the years we have been able to cut back on the cactus quite a bit. As usual, our May meeting was rather unorganized, due to the absence of our President, Vice...

    Zora Holt, For the Courier|May 10, 2023

    The Western Valley 4-H Club held our April meeting on April 23. Our president, vice president, and parliamentarian forgot about the meeting, so they had to Zoom in. We discussed progress on the Rabies Clinic and Sewing Camp. June 17, is our tentative date for Rabies Clinic, but Sewing Camp plans are currently at a standstill. We also began to make plans for our annual Thoeny Cemetery clean-up. So far, May 7 seems to be the best day for cleaning the cemetery. After the meeting, we had cake and...

    The Western Valley 4-H Club held our March meeting on March 5. Secretary Linden Holt asked the roll call question of "How many monkeys does it take to change a light bulb?" We had answers ranging from "one really smart one" to a billion. Michael Ketchum decided it "only takes one monkey to change a light bulb into broken glass!" The rest of our meeting passed uneventfully. After the meeting, members ate sandwiches, potato salad, and unicorn cupcakes prepared by the cooking cl...

    The Western Valley 4-H Club held our November meeting on Nov. 6. We welcomed new members Haizyn Rutherford and Ryan Jones during this meeting. The meeting was quite uneventful. We drew names for our Secret Santa gift exchange and discussed upcoming club activities.

    Western Valley 4-H Club members Kade Strommen, Cienna Strommen, Layna Jones, and Zora Holt got together on Oct. 12 and gave ice-cream to Hinsdale’s student body to promote 4-H. While enjoying their ice-cream, the elementary kids learned about 4-H and why they might want to join. The kids also took a slip of paper home to their parents which explained what 4-H is and how to join. We gave ice-cream to both elementary students and high school students, although the high schoolers seemed more interested in ice-cream than 4-H. On Oct. 15, Western V...
