The Carievale 4-H Beef Club has started another season, with two meetings already under its belt.
The club held its reorganization meeting on Sept. 13 at the village’s Golden Years Centre. Members participated in a scavenger hunt around town while parents filled in the registration forms. When the members returned, they were given a prize and the meeting was called to order by last year’s vice-president Karissa Elliott.
The club has 27 members this year. Twenty-two attended the first meeting.
Dane Taylor, past treasurer read the treasurer report. They discussed having a bottle drive that was held on Sept. 18.
Election of officers was conducted. Karissa Elliott is this year’s president, Marisol Gilliland is vice-president, Kenzie White returns as secretary, Ryan Cowan will be treasurer and Lance McMillen is the reporter.
Teresa Cowan will remain as general leader. Amy Taylor and Jessica Buchanan will be assistant general leaders. Project leaders this year are Kevin Taylor, Eion Kennedy, Mikyla Cliffe and Bailey Kozma. Representatives to district meetings will be Amy Taylor and Eion Kennedy and members Dane Taylor and Braden Thompson.
Their next meeting was held on Oct. 4, also at the Golden Years Centre, with 22 members present. The upcoming 4-H district meeting was mentioned.
Nov. 3 is National 4-H Day and there will be a 4H sustainability initiative coming in November.
Kevin Taylor led the members in how to make a rope halter and neck tie. The members divided into groups with the older members helping the younger ones.
The next meeting is Nov. 8.
