Welcome all 4-H members, leaders and parents to Focus on 4-H 2017, celebrating 100 years of 4-H in Alberta.  Focus on 4-H is being held July 6 - 9, 2017 in Leduc, a wonderful community.  The Northwest Region would like to thank Leduc Recreation Center for hosting our 19th annual event.

The city of Leduc is a beautiful city and offers many attractions.  This community offers hotels, motels, bed and breakfast, camping, grocery stores, farm stores, fuel stations, bowling alley as well as many local attractions, such as:

            1)  Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Center

            2)  Telford Lake

            3)  Leduc Heritage Grain Museum

            4)  Chuckin Tomahawk

Focus on 4-H offers something for members of all ages, 6-21.  Whether you are interested in the Eager Beavers (Cleaver Kids program), Multi Species Judging, Canine Show, Horse Show, Beef Show, or the Lifeskills projects, there shows for all of you.  Plan to participate in iron member decathlon, campsite decorating, the dance, or show your stuff in lip sync. Please check out the program booklet and come and join in the fun with your fellow 4-H members in Leduc.

The Northwest Region will also be celebrating the 100 year anniversary of 4-H in Alberta at Focus.  Please invite past members, leaders and families to come and see what we are all about now.

The Northwest 4-H Region would like to thank Sid Livingstone, Focus Chair, and the Focus on 4-H committee for their dedication to this Regional event.  As always please contact your project committee leaders as volunteer help is always appreciated.
