We began our 2013 - 2014 4-H year with a lunch meeting on Nov. 1. Bronte came an hour early to help prepare lunch for the rest of the club members. The lunch menu was planned to represent a good example of MyPlate, see (ChooseMyPlate.gov), which promotes healthy eating, and can be very tasty. We had Fruit and Cheese Kabobs and Fruity Shake from 4-H Cooking 101, melted cheese, beef, and peppers on french bread, and sweet potato oven fries. We skipped dessert because of Halloween the night before.
After electing new officers and other business items, we helped Jenna finish her service project of making blankets for foster children by tying two quilts. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures that day.
We decided to do service projects for our work meetings until the members get started doing their fair projects so our meeting held Nov. 15 was spent making nine fabric drawstring bags for someone who is putting together personal care kits which will be sent to Ethiopian women. As can be seen from the photos, the girls were busy sewing, serging, cutting, pressing, measuring and putting cording into casings. New and old skills were practiced.
Three members of our club did record books for evaluation this year. On Nov. 16 at the annual 4-H Awards night, they received them back with evaluation notes, seals, and pins earned. Congratulations on your great record books, Jenna, Alexa, and Chloe!
