Peabody Achievers 4-H Club met Nov. 4 at Peabody-Burns Elementary School. Brandon Entz, president, called the meeting to order and Alex Young and Morgan Gaines led the flag salute.
Twenty members, 10 parents, two leaders, and two guests answered roll call with “Your favorite Thanksgiving side dish.”
Anna Lubbers provided the treasurer’s report. Council representatives shared the names of new council officers and information that the council is considering hosting a 5-kilometer run as a fundraiser.
Community leader Shawn Entz shared that the club earned a purple seal, which is the highest award that can be achieved. She also talked about attending 4-H Day with the Kansas State University Wildcats women’s basketball team on Feb. 2.
The fundraising committee members handed out order forms and told members orders needed to be turned in by next meeting. In new business, the club voted to pay two outstanding bills.
Members participated in a scavenger hunt for recreation. Members and parents asked each other about things they did in 4-H.
For music appreciation, club members sang “God Bless My Underwear.” Also during the program, members completed their enrollment cards for the coming year, and assembled door hangers to take to the nursing home for Thanksgiving.
The next meeting will be Dec. 2 at Peabody Care Center.
