As November slowly turns to December, everyone is preparing for the new year. The Lone Butte 4H Club held its annual Year-End Banquet on Nov. 26 at the Lone Butte Community Hall.
The Year End Banquet is made up of a potluck dinner and this year the club itself, supplied the main meal of pulled pork, while the club members all brought along a dish.
The reason of having the banquet each year is to get all the club members together again before the new year and to celebrate the amazing work that the members of the club have done over the course of the year with their projects, and overall what they have achieved. Their hard work was recognized by the club, and the club leaders all met to decide what they could do to reward their outstanding dedication to their club and projects. For each project and section in that project, there was a generous award given to the member with the highest percentage in that section. Many of these awards were donated and the club would like to thank anybody who donated money or gifts to the club.
A few items for the raffle were also donated and the club wants to thank anyone who donated, and helped the club raise some money for future needs.
At the end of the ceremony, Hannah Meier presented the club with a slideshow covering the whole year, which she had put together in her own spare time.
The club is looking forward to the new year and meeting new members, and are encouraging anybody who is interested in joining to contact Heidi Meier at 250-395-6039 for any questions or information on registration.
