December 13, 2016—Brooks, AB—The Brooks UFA Farm & Ranch Supply Store hosted a successful Hands-On educational workshop for local 4-H clubs. There were over 40 4-H members in attendance that learned to do by doing. They learned how to stay safe on the farm while working with grain, how to make halters and how to take care of their animals.
“The keychain horse halters were a hit. Curtis answered quite a few tough questions and the adults in attendance learnt something too. The kids also really enjoyed finding the items in Brooklynn’s scavenger hunt,” commented Ashley Oliver, Brooks UFA Farm Store Manager.
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!
