The Paintearth 4-H Multi Club has been busy this winter and spring (what spring?) with meetings and many activities.  In January there was a regional fun day in Stettler that included swimming, Zumba and making duct tape wallets.  The district fun day was held in Consort and included bowling.
Many members from the club went to the 4-H Rebels nite in Red Deer on February 15.  It was an exciting game that went into overtime, with the Rebels defeating Victoria, 3 – 2.  There was a ski night at Alliance, also in February.
The small engine club went to tour the Finning plant in Red Deer.  They reassemble heavy oil equipment from the oil sands.  The photography club went to Calgary’s Glenbow museum to see a Fred Hertzog exhibit.  The horse club had a riding clinic with Dustin Grams in Killam.
The club held public speaking and presentations in February and all the members did really well.  Here are the results:
