At the Town's regular Council meeting on November 13, Mayor Tim MacPhee and Deputy Reeve Carl Ogrodnick signed a proclamation declaring November National 4-H Month in the Town of Vegreville and throughout Minburn County. 

For over 100 years, 4-H Canada has been one of the most respected youth programs in our area and throughout Canada. 4-H Canada believes youth should learn by doing.

The proclamation reads:

Whereas, November is National 4–H month; and

Whereas, For over 100 years, 4-H Canada has been one of the most highly respected youth organizations in Canada. We are an organization of close to 25,000 youth members, aged 6-25, and 7,700 volunteers across the country.

Whereas, 4-H is acknowledged as one of Canada’s longest running and most respected youth organizations; and

Whereas, 4–H is fun, friends, camping, pets, performing arts, beef, light horse, creative options, small engines, judging, electronics, and so much more; and

Whereas, at 4–H we “learn to do by doing” trying new things and meeting new people; and

Whereas, each 4–H member not only learns from and about his/her community, but becomes a concerned citizen by helping to make it a better place to live;

Therefore, I, Tim MacPhee on behalf of the Town of Vegreville, and I, Deputy Reeve Carl Ogrodnick, on behalf of the County of Minburn No. 27 Council, do hereby proclaim November as:
