February 2, 2017 - Claresholm, AB - The Claresholm UFA Farm & Ranch Supply Store hosted a successful Hands-On educational workshop for local 4-H clubs. There were 35 4-H members in attendance from Claresholm and Stavely that learned to do by doing. They learned how to stay safe on the farm while working with grain, how to tie knots and tag ears, and how to take care of their animals.
“Our first 4-H Hands-on event went very well” said Claresholm Site Operations Manager, Wanda Brooks. “In addition to the kids, our UFA delegate Sydney Gray was in attendance and the Claresholm Economic Development Board sent their photographer to take photos of the event”.
Attendees also learned how to apply for the UFA 4-H credit program and how their club could win $3,000 with UFA’s 4-H Centennial contest, Standing Out from the Herd.
“UFA believes that a true co-operative is more than just business. By investing in 4-H youth we’re able to help pave the way for our next generation to lead the way,” said Dina Sutherland, UFA Community Investment Manager.
UFA is excited to continue offering Alberta 4-H clubs the opportunity to learn to do by doing with educational workshops at select UFA locations through the end of March 2017. Each workshop is unique and participants are guaranteed to develop life skills and new friendships all while having fun!
