Club News: Young Americans 4-H Club
The Young Americans 4-H Club met on Thursday, Jan. 27, at Grace United Methodist Church. Anthony Strack called the meeting to order. Tyler Kirchdoerfer and Gary Schweer led the pledges. Clayton Kirchdoerfer and Haley Ehlers led a song. Ellie Foote led a game. Lydia Cameron read the minutes of the December meeting, and Anthony Strack presented the treasurer's report. Several project groups reported on their meetings: goats, veterinary science, horse, bucket calf, and dairy. The Clover Kids made hot chocolate mix, which they shared with the club. All members were invited to help with the club garden.
Tyler Kirchdoerfer gave a talk on "The 5 C's of Raising Calves." Belinda Strack gave a talk on "Dental Health for Dogs and Cats." Lydia Cameron gave a talk on "Using Sign Language with Small Children to Help Develop Language Skills." Danielle Ehlers gave a demonstration on "Making Trail Mix."
The members worked on planning several future events, including a trivia night to raise money for charity; a swim party; attending a birding activity at the Conservation Campus; making and handing out valentines at the Ratcliffe Nursing Home; and hosting Clover Kid day camp with the theme "Show Me Missouri."
