On Feb. 17, the Red River 4-H rally took place at the Winkler Curling Rink, with 23 members and 10 leaders in attendance along with 10 other 4-H clubs from the area. There was lots of fun with curling and workshops including slime, hot chocolate jar mixes, sock puppets, suncatchers, paper airplanes, bird seed feeders, fruit kabobs and Lego. The Morden Tae Kwon Do Club also gave a cool demonstration.
We will be getting ready for achievement on April 30. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the program starts at 7 p.m. Come check out the cool displays. Everyone is welcome.
