The Durness Multi Club has started 2017 off with a great jump following its first meeting and membership drive of the new year.
“This year we have a smaller numbers, but that won’t stop us from having the time of our lives,” said Miranda Rendle, club reporter and a Gr. 10 student at Lloyminster Comprehensive High School.
“We finished off our membership, but if anyone wants to join they can,” said Rendle.
This year’s list of projects are light horse, beef, driving, bunny, cooking, sheep and members will learn about yaks and welding.
“Even though we are smaller we have some kids in four projects—now I think that’s commitment,” said Rendle.
The Durness club currently meets at the Lloydminster Exhibition grounds.
The club is celebrating two major fundraisers in 2016 including a pet supply drive in May for dogs and horses impacted by the Fort McMurray wildfires last spring.
“We put together some animal things for dogs and horses and sent it off to them to help out the community and the animals,” said Rendle.The goods included food and leashes along with some toys and some cleaning produts.
Closer to Christmas, the club held a food drive for the Lloydminster Salvation Army food bank.
“So we got all of our group to bring in some food and we sent it to the Salvation Army to help out,” said Rendle with a smile.
To sum up the past year, Rendle said, “We had of great opportunities for our old members in 2016 to go see some inspiration speakers.”
