The club did its annual donation to the Weyburn Humane Society at the February meeting. Members all brought supplies needed by the Humane Society that will help out in the care of the animals. The club and the members are proud to support and help out the society.

Farm Credit Canada also came to the meeting to present the club with $500 to help with the purchase of new shirts for the members to wear at shows and other events.

Some of the club members participated in the Medicine Hat Beef pen show in December. Billy Goudy was awarded Grand Champion 4-H steer and Kylie Berner won Reserve Champion 4-H steer. Carter Goudy went on to the championship round with his heifer.

The club decided to have a fun day on Jan. 20 at the Griffin Rec Centre instead of a Christmas party. In spite of the cold weather, members skated, curled and had a wiener roast. A good time was had by all.
