Pembina Area Council Executive – 2017/18

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!
