4-H News

Herman Cheeri-O’s

Prior to this month’s meeting, we met to make Christmas Cards. The 4H members made 75 cards that will then be held out during our Christmas Caroling at local nursing homes in December. Also fair checks were handed out to all members.

Old business was discussed. The wreath sales slips are to be turned in tonight and will be available for pick up on Saturday, November 22nd at the Wunsch’s home after 3pm.

Coats for Tots was a huge success. We turned in 6 large garbage bags full. Thank you to everyone that helped out.

Enchanted Forest was a great turnout with 650 kids attending. We played games like ring toss and bean bags. Thank you to everyone that helped make the event a success.

Trick or Treating at the Bulitz’s Pumpkin Farm was a lot of fun. We served ice cream for 2 hours. They asked our club to continue this event and possibly help out in other ways next year since they appreciate the support.

We held a swimming party at Blue Harbor this past Sunday. We had 10 people attend but the kids had a great time. The slides were a big hit.

This year for our Adopt a Family Program, we have decided to work with Safe Harbor. We made up gift tags of items that are needed so everyone could grab what they wanted after the meeting. The donations will be brought next month. Socks, underwear, yoga pants, etc are in high demand.

Our club is talking about supporting Safe Harbor twice a year, once in July and once in December since the demand is so high! Toys for Tots items are to be brought next meeting or dropped off at the Howards Grove Chiropractic Center. Please make sure toys are unwrapped.

Music and Drama will begin next Monday at 6:30pm in the Northview School for one hour. Our theme will be “The 3 Pigs”. We will have 2 plays going at the same time. One with the original theme and then changing the other one up a bit too what if the 3 pigs were in 4H, what would have happened then. We will continue practices in November, December and January with the festival in February. Once a date is confirmed it will be shared.

We then moved onto new business. Saturday, November 29th is our Salvation Army Bell Ringing at Piggly Wiggly in Howards Grove. A sign us sheet was passed around tonight.

December 1st is our next meeting and will also be our Christmas party. We will meet at 5:45pm to go Christmas Caroling at local nursing homes and stores followed by a pizza party and gift exchange. It is going to be a great night so we hope all can attend. The club made a motion to donate money so we can go shopping for Christmas gifts for Rocky Knoll again this year. A date will be set soon to go buy the items.

We are in contact with Harvest Homes again to work out another date to play Bingo with the elderly. We did this back in July and since everyone had a great time, we would like to make it an event that happens a couple times a year. A date will be set at the January meeting.

Next month’s meeting will be held on Monday, December 1st at 7:00pm at the Howards Grove Middle School. Prior to the meeting, we will go Christmas Caroling at 5:45pm followed by a pizza party.
