The Ringen Brushy 4-H Club held their regular monthly meeting December 11, 2013 at Smithton High School. The meeting was called to order by President Tyler Gerke. Pledges were led by Delaney Meyers. Secretary Kiersten Luttrell took roll call and 48 members were present. The Clover Kids were then dismissed to go make a craft. Treasurer Conner Bahner read the treasurers report and it was approved as read.
In new business, several people gave project meeting reports over Sewing, Veterinary Science and Horses. The club members informed the group on what they had learned in the project meetings thus far. Volunteers for demonstrations in January were addressed. Alex Crooker is going to do one on goats and several of the horse members will be discussing horses. Stacia Luttrell talked about the Cattleman’s meeting that several club members attended. The members told the Cattlemen what they were showing and talked about the different service projects the club is involved in. The books for the book drive and the money for Casa were collected that night and were given to several parents to hand deliver.
In announcements, the club still needs project leaders for Child Development, Clothes You Buy, Electricity, Outdoor Adventures, and Theater Arts. Anyone interested in leading a project needs to talk to Cindy Gerke. Also, 4-H members must attend five club meetings and six hours of project meetings in order to complete a project. The steer weigh-in will be Feb. 15. Anyone showing a steer or market heifer needs to have them weighed in on this day.
The next county council meeting will be Jan. 16 at the extension office. The next 4-H meeting will be Jan. 8 at Smithton School. A beef meeting will be held prior to the next 4-H meeting at 6 p.m. at Smithton School.
With no further business to address, Kandyn Hotsenpiller motioned to adjourn the meeting, and Cole Luttrell seconded the motion.
