The Lyndon Leaders 4-H Club had its monthly meeting on Jan. 14, 2018. The meeting started with roll call of “What’s your favorite thing you received for Christmas?”

The officers gave their reports and then Leader Lara Shoup made the following announcements:

  • We will have an exchange meeting with the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club next month at 5 p.m. Feb. 4.
  • Club Days is on Feb. 24 and we will need many volunteers to help us host the event.
  • March 24 is the Kansas Junior Beef Producer Day.

Old business was the announcement that we still have time to sell hog raffle tickets because we won’t draw a winner until February. We will continue to set up a ticket booth at the Lyndon High School home basketball games.

For new business the club made nominations for the 4-H Council fundraiser, and the club voted on Mark Peterson.

For the program, Garrett Shoup gave a demonstration called, “How to make an origami puppy”. He had every member of the club make their own puppy. Next, Breckyn Whitton-Peterson and Reanna Marcotte gave a talk on Golden Retrievers. The program ended with Leanne Shoup giving a demonstration called, “How to play a ukulele.”

The meeting ended with a fun scavenger hunt around the school, hosted by the Shoup family, and delicious refreshments supplied by the Marcotte family.
