4-H CLUB: Busy Jayhawkers
Submitted by Shayna Strahm
The regular monthly meeting of the Busy Jayhawkers was called to order on Monday, June 25, by junior president Spencer Strahm.
The meeting was preceded by a club tour where members visited houses to view a variety of projects more in-depth. Afterwards, there was a potluck followed by the monthly meeting. The pledge was led by Kendall Edelman and Reid Plattner, followed by roll call which was answered by “share an embarrassing moment.”
Next, the Clover Buds were dismissed and the minutes of the monthly meeting were read off by junior secretary Plattner. The treasurer and reporter gave their reports and the attention of the meeting was further directed toward the project leaders, Sue Rokey and Carrie Strahm, who shared various bits of important information in light of the rapidly approaching Nemaha County Fair.
Wednesday, June 27, is fair grounds and stepping stones work night; and fair entries are due Monday, July 2. Photo boards and mount workshops are on Wednesday, July 11, at the Nemaha County Extension office; and Wednesday, July 18, is consultation judging taking place in Seneca. Fair set-up takes place on Wednesday, July 25, and clean-up takes place from Friday, July 27, through Monday, July 30.
S. Rokey also gave us a brief refresher on entry cards and sticky labels, as well as reminded members to complete the 4-H premium auction requirements. A food stand sign-up sheet was passed around as well for club members to volunteer. The program was then handed over to junior vice president.
Edelman gave a project talk on the Mayor’s Bread Basket, which is a great way to learn how to make bread and even make a little money by selling it.
The next meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, July 23.
