The April meeting of the Lyndon Leaders 4-H Club was held on Sunday, April 10, 2016 at 4:30 P.M in the Lyndon School cafeteria. President Kaelin Bones called the meeting to order. Kendall Young led the 4-H pledge and flag salute. Ryan Bones, secretary, then did roll call, which was answered by “When is your birthday?” There were 17 members and 14 adults, and two leaders present.

The Parent Committee decided they did not want to do a cookie jar for the fair. Samantha Cole made the motion and Tara Green seconded it. Leader Lara Shoup reminded us that the last day to add or drop projects is May 1. Also she reminded us that anyone interested in talking on the radio (KOFO) that there are spots available. Kristin Kneisler told us that A.S.P. needed volunteers for 4-H talks on May 3 and members were encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity. Lara also reminded us of fair dates and an upcoming livestock show on May 14 at Overbrook.

During unfinished business the Kneislers showed the club the finished Lyndon Leaders 4-H sign that was donated to put along the highway. Ethan Kneisler told us where it will be located and the group took a picture together with the sign.

The program included Tara Green giving a project talk on pictures she took while working on focusing with her camera. Brayden did a demonstration on a volcano erupting, using a home kit. Following the program was recreation, when the Shoup family broke the club into groups and each group had to work together to put a puzzle together and see who could finish first. Refreshments were supplied by the Bones family.

The next meeting will be held at the Lyndon School cafeteria at 4:30 p.m. May 22, 2016. Tara moved to adjourn the meeting and Allie Kneisler seconded it. The meeting ended by saying the club motto.
