South Parkland Area Council Executive – 2017/18
South Parkland Awards Senior Members for Highest Achievement
Members, parents, grandparents and Leaders gathered in Minnedosa for the annual South Parkland 4-H Fun and Recognition Day. Workshops and fun activities were organized throughout the afternoon while senior members attended interviews.
Following the banquet, judges Elizabeth Mandziuk and Candace Tolton presented awards to the successful senior members. South Parkland 4-H Entrance Bursaries are sponsored by South Parkland Area 4-H Council and were awarded to three members based on a written application outlining 4-H involvement and future plans. Rayna Topham of the Minnedosa 4-H For Teens, Danielle Clarke of the Newdale 4-H Club, and Michaela Kreshewsky of the Newdale 4-H Club each received $200 to be used towards continuing their education.
The 4-H Gold Watch Award is considered the top honour that 4-H members can receive to recognize their years of involvement in the 4-H program. Members submit an application outlining their 4-H history and attend an interview where they are asked questions about themselves, their communities and their knowledge of the program; three members were selected to receive watches. Lauren McKee of the Rapid City 4-H Rodeo Club was awarded the gold watch sponsored by Heritage Co-op Ltd. of Minnedosa, Rayna Bonchuk of the Foxwarren/Solsgirth 4-H Beef Club was awarded the gold watch sponsored by Richardson Pioneer of Shoal Lake, and Thijs Van de Langemheen of the Rapid City 4-H Beef Club was awarded the gold watch sponsored by Jackson Seeds (2013) Ltd. of Inglis. The gold watches were supplied and engraved by Reesor’s Jewellery of Brandon.
Congratulations to all of the members for their hard work and their years of dedication to their 4-H clubs.
