Web Lead

On Oct. 6, the Creston Valley 4-H Horse Club held a ride-a-thon, with members riding from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The 4-H club rode to raise money for a family that has recently moved to the Creston Valley from Myanmar.

Going over and around obstacles with their horses on a sunny day, it was fun for all 4-H members and horses.

The 4H club asked one of the many volunteers, Denise, to join one of their meetings. Denise happily came to a meeting and also brought Kler Nay Moo, a brother in the refugee family. Kler is 17 years old and in Grade 10. There are seven members in his family and all members are taking ESL, and managing to adjust to huge change in their lives.

The 4-H club proudly presented Kler and his family with a cheque for $1,200 dollars, and extends its appreciation to all of the sponsors.
