4-H Club: Woodlawn Meadowlarks
Submitted by Gwendolyn Walker
On Oct. 13, the Woodlawn Meadowlarks started their new 4-H year. Before the meeting they cleaned up the Woodlawn Hall as a service project in the 48 hours of 4-H. Members scrubbed, swept, washed, and dusted getting the hall ready for another year while the adults worked on ceiling repairs and plumbing.
An officer installation was held before the meeting. Assistant Club Leader Shirley Walker, handed out baking ingredients to each officer that represented how each office holds the club together like the ingredients hold together to make a delicious recipe.
President Susannah Walker led the meeting. Secretary Isabelle Walker asked the roll call question, “What do you want to accomplish this year in 4-H?”
Kayla Devore reported for the marketing committee that the club had a display at the Sabetha Library for National 4-H Week. Club Leader Emily Stoller recognized Kansas State Fair participants.
The club voted to continue to make piñatas for Christmas. Everyone suggested ideas and voted on their favorites. This year the club decided to make three piñatas: a four-leaf clover, a reindeer and a cow.
For the program, Susannah Walker gave a talk on pet health and showed how to give a physical exam on her kitten, Fiona. Anastasia Walker demonstrated how to make kitten formula and fed her kitten, Phineas.
