First of all, Monica Lawson asked me to tell all of you that she will hold her first watercolor 4-H group meeting on Wednesday, November 20th from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. at her home. The kids can ride the Cottage Grove bus from school, but transportation home must be provided by the parents. For the list of supplies and more information, call Monica at (phone number).
ATTENTION!!: Anyone interested in horse 4-H? The Lorane Equestrian Centre will be holding 4-H horsemanship classes starting on Thursday, November 21st a6 4:30 p.m. A limited supply of horses will be available for non-owner 4-H’ers. (That’s great! It gives you kids who love horses, but don’t own one, a chance to learn how to ride.) For more information call Pat Ribe. (phone number)
The Lorane dog obedience club will be holding its sign-up meeting on Tuesday, December 10th at 7:30 in the school. Classes will begin on January 7th in the arena. Call Marna Hing if you have any questions (phone numbers)
The 3-L’s 4-H Club held its second meeting of the year last Tuesday. Ballots were cast and officers were elected. Our newly elected officials are: Sandra Brewer, president; Jaylene Jentzsch, vice president; Lori Jones, secretary-treasurer; Jeralee Jentzsch, reporter; and Tina Taylor, historian. Congratulations, girls! (We must have a strong lib movement going here!) We gained a new member, too. Yvette Hamby of Crow signed up in the sheep project. I guess that I should add that we lost three members, too. The Mortensen twins of Crow and Joey Sayles of Lorane decided to forego 4-H this year. (Maybe we’ll get ya next year, kids!) Materials and pins were passed out to the new members and future plans of the club were discussed. One thing that I failed to bring up at the meeting was our plans to have a bake sale next month. The leaders will set a date and let the kids know well in advance. The next meeting will be held on December 10th at 7:00 p.m. in the school cafeteria.
It appears that all of the other 4-H clubs are scheduled to begin after the first of the year. The ones that definitely will be starting then are the sewing club, the beginning home ec club, and probably the small engine repair club. Shirley VanDecar will probably get her garden club started after the heaviest part of lambing season is over. In other words, probably March or April. (Hope I’m not forgetting any!) We’ll keep you posted, anyway.
Well, I guess that about takes care of our 4-H news this time. Let me know if you have any news about your club, your project, or any ideas that you might have for a new club.
Bye for now, and Be Happy!
Lorane 4-H Community Coordinator
