This year our club had many new members, and we have grown! Thanks to our wonderful leaders, we have been able to enjoy many projects, including: Fishing/Outdoor Adventures, Scrapbooking, Photography, Cake Decorating, Arts & Crafts, Project Budget Runway, Cultural Appreciation, Local Geology and Community Service.
Our biggest project is our swine project, with 34 members and six of our members raise beef as a project.
Our club volunteers every other month at “Harbor Community Church” by helping prepare and serve hot meals to those in need. We also participate in their annual Holiday dinner, this was a huge success. We donated a large amount of new socks and warm coats which were handed out at the dinner.
We made Christmas baskets for a couple of local families, participated in the Beach Clean-Up Day, did Trick-Or-Treat-So-Others –Can-Eat, and made Valentines for Vets.
We also scrapbooked, took photographs, decorated cupcakes, shopped at Thrift stores, checked out Dia de los Muertos, and had an overnight camping trip where we fished and played many games.
Our members are currently busy getting ready for the Ventura County Fair in August, either with our animals, entering a table setting, photograph or a cake decorating piece. We look forward to the fair; we always have a great time and learn something new.
