4-H CLUB: Stateliners
Submitted by Maddy Mosteller Club Reporter
The May meeting of the Stateliners 4-H Club was called to order by President Helen Krehbiel at 7 p.m. Monday, May 21, at the Bern Community Building. Most of the club members participated in the Bern flower box planting project prior to the meeting.
Lane Mosteller and Jenny Edelman led us in the Flag salute, 4-H pledge and Motto. J. Edelman led us in singing a repeat after me song – “Boom Chicka Boom.” Amanda Krehbiel called the roll by asking members what first name they would like to have, many of us liked our own name! A. Krehbiel read the minutes of the April club meeting.
Luke Renyer gave the treasurer’s report, noting the expenses since the last meeting. Two of our members — Anna Krehbiel and H. Krehbiel — received their senior scholarship. Reporter Maddy Mosteller said she had not yet sent in the April article.
Mrs. Renyer discussed the Welcome Sign project and showed us what the new sign looked like, this was old business as we approved paying for half of the sign. Stateliners are responsible for putting up the new sign on the state line north of Bern. A committee of Thomas Edelman, Nathan Knapp and Jonathan Knapp was formed.
During committee reports, N. Knapp suggested that we could build shelves out of pallets and sell them as a fundraiser. Mrs. Krehbiel mentioned that their family is moving and as another fundraiser for the club, the Krehbiel family would provide money to the club for assistance in moving.
The community service committee was represented by Anna telling us about a project she plans to organize for the club, of writing thank you notes to soldiers. There was no new business.
The program was a demonstration from Leah Renyer showing us different ways to separate egg yolks from the white. Haven Knapp brought her Guinea pig to the meeting and told us how she takes care of it.
J. Knapp led the club in Recreation by playing blob tag. Announcements noted the members going to Discovery Days and 4-H Camp, reminders of 4-H Council, Ambassador Day camp and many other summer deadlines.
The Record Book challenge was to show started project record sheets. May birthdays included: Mrs. Renyer, Nathan Knapp and Lindy Mosteller.
Refreshments were provided by the Mosteller family. The next meeting will be held on Monday, June 25, at the Bern Community Building.
