We had a fabulous week at the Royal Manitoba Winter Fair. It was great to have so many members/leaders stop by our booth to chat or take part in our activities. 4-H Day, Tuesday, March 28th was a great success with Minister Eichler stopping by to speak with our members/leaders and the return of the 4-H Club march in the main arena at opening ceremonies was very well represented. Thank you to everyone who participated, the Provincial Exhibition for supplying our booth space and to MB Canola Growers for sponsoring the tickets for our members. Clubs, please send your thank you to Ellen Pruden, Manitoba Canola Growers Association, 400 – 167 Lombard Ave. Winnipeg MB R3B 0T6. Click here to see pictures from the day.
