Tuesday, March 28, 2023 is 4-H Day at the Winter Fair in Brandon. Manitoba 4-H Council staff will be at the 4-H booth at the fair to share information about the 4-H Manitoba program, which is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year. CO-OP, in partnership with the Provincial Exhibition of Manitoba, is offering free and discounted gate admission to 4-H members. Clubs must submit their ticket orders and payments by Monday, March 13. Visit https://provincialexhibition.com/4-h-ticket-order-from/ for more details.
Manitoba 4-H Council is looking for a handful of volunteers who would like to come for a few hours to help out with our activity area at the 4-H Manitoba booth at this month’s Winter Fair. Volunteer shifts will be from 12 p.m.-3 p.m. and you can volunteer for one day, or MORE! If you have some spare time and would like to be a part of the fun and excitement, please contact Kellie McCallum at 204-726-1914 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate which day or days you are available, and she will coordinate the schedule.
The Intermediate Members’ Event committee is looking for Senior and/or Adult Members to lead groups of 4-H members at the event taking place May 27 and 28 at Camp Manitou. This would be an excellent opportunity to add Leadership to your resumé. We would ask you to join our planning meetings held via Zoom in the evenings and be prepared to spend the weekend with our Intermediates, sharing your knowledge and leadership skills. If you would like to help make this a fun and memorable event, please contact Linda McRae-Walker at email@example.com by Friday, March 17, 2023.
