I would like to take this time to thank the Canadian 4-H Council, the Saskatchewan 4-H Council as well as all the sponsors for giving me the opportunity to attend this amazing conference. It was an event fi lled 5 days! We were able to participate in some informational workshops, listen to excellent speakers, and participate in many discussions with leaders from around the country. We toured exciting places such as the CN Tower, the Royal Winter Fair, the largest John Deere Parts Plant in Canada, and went to see Niagara Falls! We even took in a dinner theater and Murder Mystery!
There were 44 leaders from various parts of Canada. It was interesting to find out how 4-H is run in other places. We shared ideas on many things such as running a club to fundraising ideas. The conference was well run and well organized. Along with the leaders conference, 4-H members from across Canada met at the same time for a National Members Conference.
I would like to encourage all leaders and members to apply to go to these conferences. It is an awesome opportunity that I know you will enjoy. Again THANK YOU to all those involved in the National 4-H Leaders Conference! Jackie Hiltz, General Leader, Riverview Riders 4-H Club.
