We are looking forward to a new year in 4-H, and we hope things can go back to normal soon! We only have two members, but we will still have a great year! This year our leaders are Mr. Ridley Wikkerink, Mrs. Darlene Brandsma, Mrs. Henrietta Groenendijk and Ms. Michelle Laszczyk. At our first meeting on February 3, 2021, we finished off our last year’s business and elected our new officers. This year our President is Lauren Aldrich- Wikkerink, Secretary is Annabelle Faustino, Vice President is Annabelle Faustino, our Treasurer is Lauren Aldrich-Wikkerink, and our club reporters are Annabelle Faustino and Lauren Aldrich-Wikkerink. On March 11, we did our public speaking, educational displays, and speak and show. Even with COVID-19 restrictions, we will still have an amazing year of fun and laughter. We are hopeful that we will be able to participate in 4-H shows such as the Cobble Hill, Maple Ridge, Vancouver Island, and the Cowichan Exhibition. We are super excited for another year of 4-H and hopefully, we will see you at the shows!
