Clubs 4-H Junior Leaders
The 4-H Junior Leaders met Nov. 14 at the 4-H Center right after the recognition event. There were 25 members present.
For old business we discussed the likes and dislikes of the Clay County Fair. The junior leaders' booth, opening ceremonies and the food stand were the main items discussed. Then we went on to the dislikes and likes of the Junior Leaders Club. The meeting times, activities and other items were the main agenda.
For new business, we discussed plans for the year and the regional 4-H conference. The regional conference will be held in Kansas City March 15-19, 2000. It is a really fun and exciting conference offered to any 4-H member.
We elected officers, they are as follows: President Tabitha Hubert, Vice President Evan Peterson, Secretary Chris Lynch, Treasurer Amanda Aga and Reporter Leslie Larson.
The next meeting will probably be in January. The committee will either call or send a postcard. Hope to see you there.
The Jolly Juniorettes 4-H Club met Nov. 9 at the 4-H Center. David Rosacker led the Pledge of Allegiance and Korry Speakman led the 4-H Pledge.
Each member is asked to bring approximately $5 to the December meeting to be donated to the Camp Lakodia fund. We will also collect winter gear, such as mittens and hats to be given to those in need. Members are encouraged to attend a quilting class on Nov. 20.
Patty Crowley demonstrated "How to Sew On a Button." Sarah Jordt showed how to make "Sock Snowmen" and Ellissa Jordt made "Candy Trains." We then painted Christmas ornaments for the Christmas tree at the W.H. Over Museum.
Our next meeting will be Dec. 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the nursing home. We will then move to the 4-H Center for our gift exchange and Christmas craft.
