On Saturday, May 17, 2014, the beautiful cedar gazebo built as a grand prize item for the Saskatchewan 4-H Lottery by students at A.E. Peacock Collegiate was unveiled at Peavey Mart in Moose Jaw, SK.
For many years, students at A.E. Peacock Collegiate have followed the 4-H motto of “Learn to Do by Doing” while creating the grand prize item for the Saskatchewan 4-H Lottery with supplies and materials donated by Yara Belle Plaine Inc. Past grand prize items have included deluxe playhouses, a gardening shed, and an ice fishing shack. In 2013 and again in 2014, John Deere Canada has supplied a second grand prize item, a John Deere Gator.
Representatives from 4-H Saskatchewan, Yara Belle Plaine, A.E. Peacock Collegiate, Peavey Mart, and John Deere were present for the unveiling. Local 4-H members and leaders from the Ernfold 4-H Beef Club also hosted a fundraising BBQ at the weekend event.
The grand prize gazebo will remain on display at Peavey Mart in Moose Jaw until the draw for the lottery on July 9, 2014. All winners will be announced following the draw.
This is 4-H Saskatchewan’s 18th annual lottery. The Saskatchewan 4-H Lottery is a major fundraiser for the organization with all proceeds supporting 4-H. 4-H clubs selling tickets keep 50% of their sales with the remaining 50% being invested into 4-H programs at the regional and provincial level. Tickets are 2 for $5.00 and are available from local 4-H clubs across the province or by contacting the Provincial 4-H Office.
4-H Saskatchewan is grateful to have the support of all of our prize donors including: John Deere Canada, Yara Belle Plaine, WestJet Airlines, The Western Producer, Peavey Industries Ltd., Federated Co-operatives Ltd., Cabela’s, Weber BBQ Shop, and Supreme Office Products Limited.
