CHRISTMAS 2021 ❆ BC HOLSTEIN NEWS 31 Southern Alberta Holstein Club Awards Night
 Karly Boom, SAHC Secretary
On Friday, November 19th, the SAHC hosted their Awards Banquet and Christmas Party. The evening focused on being together as fellow dairy farmers and industry partners to celebrate our accomplishments. However, we also wanted to acknowledge the devastation in BC and the terrible stress placed on dairy farmers in the worst affected areas. Our board decided that all proceeds of our silent auction would go to BC Dairy’s Flood Recovery Fund. We would like to thank all sponsors and members for donating items to the silent auction, and the buyers for supporting this important cause. We are proud to announce that we raised
approximately $8,500!!! Thanks everyone!
Congratulations to the following Club Award winners and thanks to our generous sponsors.
