By Leanne Shoup, Club Reporter

The February meeting of the Lyndon Leaders 4-H club was held at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016, in the Lyndon School cafeteria. Vice president Brayden Marcotte called the meeting to order. Allie Kneisler led the 4-H pledge and flag salute. Ethan Kneisler, junior secretary, did roll call, which was answered by your favorite TV show. There were 20 members, 14 adults and 1 leader present.

Officer reports were given by junior secretary and treasurer, Ethan Kneisler, and reporter Leanne Shoup.

Parent volunteer Doug Shoup provided a team building activity that worked on communication skill and working together. The object of the game was to stick as many balloons to one person on the team, using only balloons and tape.

For new business, Ethan Kneisler presented that Sugar Pete is having their flea market 9 a.m.-3 p.m. May 28. There was a discussion on if the club wanted to sell lemonades and kettle corn like last year. Owen Driver made a motion to sell kettle corn and lemonades at Sugar Pete’s Flea Market on May 28. Leanne Shoup seconded the motion. Ethan Kneisler then made a motion to have the club pay Sugar Pete’s for the $25 booth fee. Allie Kneisler seconded.

The program consisted of Allie Kneisler doing a demonstration on how to make a Valentine’s snack. After Allie showed everyone how to make the snack, the club made their own Valentine snack using the ingredients that she brought.

The March meeting was cancelled due to spring break. The next meeting will be held at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, April 10, in the Lyndon School cafeteria.
