EDWARDS -- 4-H Club members and supporters of 4-H from all over Eastern Ontario converged on Anderson Links Golf Course in the Osgoode ward of rural Ottawa near Edwards in June to enjoy 18 holes of golf and two delicious meals in the Anderson Link's clubhouse.
Over 200 people came out and celebrated the event's theme, Supporting Future Leaders, which is one of the main goals of 4-H clubs, regardless of type. It is 4-H members who are often front and centre at local agricultural events, especially fairs and livestock shows. "What would we do without them?" one member of a nearby agricultural society said. "They're our future."
There were about 30 sponsors for the day, which had good weather, a good turnout, and sought-after prizes.
