You may know of 4-H as an youth organization based in agriculture. Well, did you know 4-H has a club in the city? Meetings are held on the 2nd Friday of each month at the Old Barn Community Centre at UBC. A new member information meeting will be held on Friday, October 11 from 6 to 8 pm for students aged 9 years and up who are interested in hearing more. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or ask one of the Tennyson members.
Four Tennyson students are members of the UBC 4-H club and recently celebrated their achievements together at the UBC Barnraising Festival. (Alex Sernoski, Jenny Tindall, Charlotte Sernoski, Ella Stewart with Beau the rabbit).
This year, Ella and Jenny both took on a Food Project and were very successful with their baking. If you ask them nicely, they might share the recipe for their lemon squares and brownies that won a blue ribbon at the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows Country Fest!
Alex completed an Outdoor Living educational display which earned him a 1st prize at the PNE 4-H fair! Submitting a project to the PNE also earned him a day of free rides at Playland and a pizza party.
In addition to other activities, the 4-H members visited the Hamming Dairy Farm in Richmond and learned how to judge dairy cows, small engines, meals and camping equipment.
