4-H Club: Stateliners
Submitted by Maddy Mosteller Club Reporter
The January meeting of the Stateliners 4-H Club was called to order by Helen Kriehbiel on a cold and snowy night at 7 p.m. on Jan. 22, at the Bern Community Building.
Lane Mosteller and Jenny Edelman led us in the flag salute and 4-H pledge. Haven Knapp led us in singing our opening song. Amanda Krehbiel called the roll of members by naming a Kansas animal. Answers ranged from bison to turtles and many other animals in between. A. Krehbiel read the minutes of the December Christmas party meeting. Maddy Mosteller reported that her report was submitted to the Seneca Courier-Tribune and The Sabetha Herald.
M. Mosteller reported that a check from the last 1,000 Best Choice labels had been received and that she has about 800 more labels collected. Club Leader Teresa Edelman reminded us that we needed to confirm our Club Day entries and an electronic sign-up would be sent from the extension office. T. Edelman also reminded members to show her two completed goals in each project area, for the record book incentive this month. H. Krehbiel noted that our club entry would be junior and senior gavel game teams and that we would be organizing and practicing after the meeting.
For the program, Anna Knapp talked about her citizenship project and showed us some displays that she has created to share with others. These posters included the Bill of Rights, immigration papers and other very interesting documents that show what it is to be a citizen of the United States.
H. Krehbiel talked about how valuable her 4-H record book has been for her to look back at how she has grown and documents important events in her 4-H life. She encouraged all of us to keep an accurate record book and passed hers around for us to look at. Due to the weather and gavel game practice, we did not have recreation, which would have been more fun than gavel games!
We had a final reminder to sign up for Club Day. It was announced that the next meeting will be held on Feb. 26 at the Bern Community Building. There are seven January birthdays of Stateliner members so we sang Happy Birthday to the six in attendance. This is almost half of our members, January is a popular month. The club adjourned to have to have gavel game practice and slipped and slid home in the blowing snow.
