The Morrill Tip-Top 4-H Club last met on Monday, Nov. 27, 2017, at the Morrill Community Building.
The meeting was called to order by Junior President Norea Menold at 7 p.m. N. Menold led the club in prayer. Kiaya Beyer led the club in the Pledge of Allegiance and the 4-H Pledge.
Roll call was answered by, “What you are thankful for?”
Lyndsey Menold led the club in singing “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer.” The club also sang “Happy Birthday” to 4-Hers with November and December birthdays.
For correspondence, Beyer read a thank you from the Food Pantry. Treasurer Tyler Menold gave the Treasurer’s report. Reporter Carly Hartter announced that she had sent last month’s report to The Sabetha Herald.
Leader Jennifer Ploeger reported that on Dec. 28, 2017, there would be fair judge training in Horton and that on July 5, there would be a multi-county small project judging. Ploeger also informed the club that the 4-H year would be starting on Nov. 1 next year instead of Oct. 1.
Leader Jesse Ploeger then announced that our club will have KAP training. KAP stands for “Kansas Award Portfolio.” These portfolios are record books completed by 4-Hers each year, which serve as a collection of goals, activities and summaries of what was accomplished for the year in each project.
Kellen Menold had a Parliamentary Law talk about the order of a meeting.
In New Business, Morrill Tip-Top 4-Hers made plans for raking leaves for community members on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, and to also make cards and fleece hats for Meals on Wheels recipients.
