e t a d p U y l h t n o M Hybrid AGM a Success

The Yewsuk family from the South East region enjoyed more than one winter fun day this year! They went skating, made snow forts, dug tunnels, went biking, played hockey and more! submitted photo

The 2021 Annual General Meeting was held on March 20. This year, due to gathering size limits, it was a hybrid in-person and virtual event. Four locations – North Battleford, Melfort, Regina and Swift Current – joined together the 107 attendees through Zoom. ​ It was an exciting challenge to figure out how to safely put on an in-person event during a global pandemic. Each location was not allowed more than 30 people in the room, with each attendee having to go through screening questions and be signed in and out for contact tracing. In addition, there were sanitization stations available, all participants were required to wear masks and no food and drink was allowed in the meeting space. To help participants sit through a full day of meetings without food under these restrictions, there was an extended lunch period, to give them enough time to leave the facility to eat. The theme of this year’s meeting “STEMming to the Beyond”, under the Science & Technology development pillar. The leaders and members were given a sealed pulse snack (which they could not open) from Three Farmers. They used the code on the package to participate in a game, learning more about pulses and where their product was grown, before answering a few questions through Mentimeter about agriculture. During the day, member and leader voting delegates were asked to vote for the Board of Directors, Advisory Council and Ambassador Representatives, as well as to vote on one resolution which would require clubs that do not reorganize to put their funds in trust with 4-H Saskatchewan for two years. 1


If the club does not reorganize in two years, the funds would support either the district the club belongs to or a club start up fund, which would supply a grant to new clubs. After a few amendments, the resolution was carried. Since the event was mostly virtual, members were encouraged to have some fun through an online trivia game and watched a “Parade of Regions” video, with appearances from some staff, board, advisory council and ambassadors. There was a special Clover Draw, where participants put a toonie into a tin to have their name put on a numbered clover. There was then draws throughout the day, where if your number was pulled, you would be able to pick up a prize when you left the meeting. Between the Clover Draw and donations from district 4-H councils, $1,500 for the Saskatchewan 4-H Foundation was raised. After the business portion of the meeting concluded, there were a few special announcements. The most impactful announcement was the $250,000 gift from Mr. Brian Hesje to 4-H Saskatchewan. His gift will go towards improving technology and to the creation of an alumni program. The attendees enjoyed a short video, where Mr. Hesje explained his donation in his own words. Another exciting announcement was the creation of the Exploring 4-H At Home Kits, which were made possible through the Emergency Community Support Fund. These kits will help clubs in rural areas, who may not have advanced technology, connect with their members through fun activities. There are nine kits available and each fits under at least one of the 4-H Canada Leadership Development pillars. They include worksheets, some supplies and instructions for each kit. The business meeting was adjourned and everyone was free to go home. Overall, it was a very successful AGM! Our Board of Directors for the 2021-22 year are: • North West: Cameron Choquette, Becky Huber and Louise Sroka; • North East: Mike Kirzinger, Michell Heidecker, Trena Hoffus-Preston; • South West: Alvin Pawlitza, Kylie Mackie and Stan Figley; • South East: Glenn Gress, Brittany Stepp and Jason Frey; • Member Delegates: Dylan Watt and Brooklyn Trask; • Ag Representative: Leah Clark as our Ag Representative. ​ The Board of Directors held their first reorganizational meeting a few days after AGM, where they elected the 2021-22 Executive and special positions. Congratulations to: • President: Cameron Choquette • Vice President: Becky Huber • Secretary: Brittany Stepp • Foundation representative: Mike Kirzinger • Advisory Council representative: Louise Sroka ​ ur 2021-22 Advisory Council members are Grace Christensen (SE), Shayla Preston (NE), Kennedy MacNeil (SW) O and Amanda Kaminski (NW). The AC will be completing online training within the next couple months and planning their first in-person meeting. The 2021-22 Ambassadors are: • North West: Jessica D., Julie-Ann W., Jessica W., Jeanelle W. & Kelly K., • North East: Kierra H., Katherine P., Mackenzie O., Kira W., Miranda H. & Amy M. • South West: Brynne L., Hanna L., Makaila P., Robyn M., Stacey H. & Nora S. • South East: Madeline C., Emily S., Tabatha B., Susan A., Paula B. & Jennifer W. 4-H Saskatchewan is looking forward to the 2021-22 year and is excited to welcome the new Board, Advisory Council and Ambassadors to their roles within the organization. 2

Regional Summer Day Camps

Project In A Day Camp

These camps will be for seven to 12 year old members.

There will be two streams - one for Cloverbuds and one for Juniors.

These camps will be for 13 to 15 year old members, who are interested in learning about a project they may not be registered in! Members will pick two projects from the list on the registration form and have the opportunity to work on one in the morning and the other in the afternoon.

Space will be limited to the Government of Saskatchewan’s day camp restricitions. As of April, this means each camp will only have space for 15 4-H members. We will have a wait list, so if this number changes, we will open it up to more people. Dates are yet to be detemined, so stay tuned to the 4-H website and future monthly updates! We will also be looking for senior 4-H members and adult as volunteers to help throughout the day. Volunteers could be working with the campers in a counsellor role or helping with behind the scenes disinfecting, organizing and serving meals/snacks.

Equine Symposium Equine Symposium will be held in July in Lloydminster. The date has changed with the hope we will be able to accomodate more 4-H members in the summer! The cost will be $45 for members and leaders and $55 for 4-H parents and friends. Lunch will be provided to all participants. There will be a live demo with a young horse, as well as speakers on equine health topics. Since it is a demonstration clinic, attendees are not required to bring a horse. Registration will be available online through Eventbrite. Check the 4-H website Event Calendar for more information closer to the event! 6
