4-H club speech night and other skills

Ashcroft 4-H kids continue to learn new skills, both on and outside the ranch.

The Ashcroft 4-H Club started off the year with a Pot Luck at the Schroeder’s.

Then we had Speech Night at the River In on Feb. 20. Brenna Kellington did a speech on cancer, Ali Spooner on superstitions, Mackenzie Woodburn on Axolotls (lizards), Ashly Schroeder on her family and Kayla Schroeder on the Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. Leeza and Haley Schroeder did a demo on how to make yogurt. We would like to thank the judges, Mrs. Maria Russell-Martin, Mr. and Mrs. Strachan, Mrs. Susan Schalles and the time keeper Gianna Kellington for their time.

All of us are busy with our sheep, steers and photography. We had a great field day at Knutsford where we got to judge animals, hay and photos.

We also had a day at Hat Creek Ranch where we learned how to take great photos with our instructor Guy Lundstrom.

A big Thank You to Second Time Around for their generous donation. We were able to make a bench for the arena so that more people can get their skates on.
