Pembina Area Council Executive – 2018/19

2018 Outstanding Member Award

The Pembina Area 4-H Council gives out an “Oustanding Member Award” each year worth $500 to a member age 15 to 25 from one of the ten clubs in this Area.  All members that meet the criteria are invited to apply.  The applicants have their application forms scored and also go for an interview.  We would like to thank our sponsors for the award this year:  Westoba Credit Union, Baldur Pharmacy, Parks Food Market, the Sentinel-Courier, and the Mariapolis-Baldur 4-H Club.  Dylan Ricard of the Mariapolis-Baldur 4-H Club was the recipient this year, and was presented with the award by Colleen Mangin of the Westoba Credit Union, Swan Lake branch.  Congratulations Dylan!

2018 Pembina Area 4-H Rally

For the Pembina Area 4-H Rally this year, the Mariapolis – Baldur 4-H Club hosted the event, with 4-H Manitoba inviting Bruxelles 4-H Crew, Cartwright 4-H Club, Clearwater 4-H Beef Club, La Riviere 4-H Beef Club, Manitou Sunset Riders 4-H Club, Rock Lake Combined 4-H Club, Somerset Combined 4-H Club, Swan Lake Handi-Hands and Windygates 4-H Beef Club (Darlingford).

The members and a few friends went to Killarney, on June 2, to bowl at the Shamrock Bowling Lanes.  It started off with a regular game, and the second game got a few more laughs as there was a set schedule on “How” we were to bowl.  Afterwards we had a great spread of hotdogs, chips, fruits, veggies and ice cream!
