Club votes to go to homeless shelter

Devon Gaines moved the Peabody Achievers 4-H Club should go to the homeless shelter in Newton for the community service project.

The club received a letter from Tri-County Fair. The fair is requesting junior superintendents. The deadline is May 23 for those that want to compete in the Fair Queen Contest.

The club treasurer reported that the club made between $150 and $200 at the concession stand at the Spring Beef Show. Shawn Entz presented the club with a bill for $76.48 for concession stand supplies. Devon Gaines suggested the club provide a concession stand for the home swim meet on June 22.

Council representative Jack Parks reported that play day is scheduled for June 22 or June 29. The achievement banquet will be held 6 p.m. Nov. 3. The meat will be provided but each family needs to bring two sides and table service. There will not be fair T-shirts this year, but there will be a dress code. There are several changes to fair schedule. Livestock will be released 11 p.m. Friday and clean-up Saturday morning.

The leadership project members met at Peabody-Burns Elementary School and helped assemble MTSS packets.

Shawn Entz reminded the club that nominations for livestock are due June 15. She also reminded members to be sure to read the newsletter because of fair changes and club responsibilities for the fair.

Gaines moved the club should meet with the Cassoday Boosters 4-H Club. The Boosters will be invited to attend the club’s June meeting and swim party.

Roll call for the club was answered by “What are you going to do for your mom on Mother’s Day?” There were 17 members, two leaders, and eight parents at the meeting.

For recreation, the club played a game of “Who Am I?” For the song this month, the club sang, “On Top of Spaghetti.” Aubrey Craig played three songs on the piano for the program. Refreshments were provided by the Entz and Gossen families.
