The Lyndon Leaders 4-H Club had their monthly meeting on Feb. 11, 2018, as part of an exchange meeting with the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club. The meeting was held in the Melvern community building. The meeting started with roll call of “What’s your favorite Olympic sport?”

Before the officer reports, clubs presented a plaque to Larry and Kay Salisbury for the Friend of 4-H award, since they could not attend Achievement Night in November.  Next were announcements of District Club Days on Feb. 24, availability of scholarship applications for 4-H camp and Discovery Days, and 4-H camp, and barn quilt workshops in February.

The program for the evening was Braelyn McNally giving a talk on getting her steer ready for the fair; Ethan Kneisler giving a demonstration on how to wire an outlet; and Allie Kneisler explaining how to show a hog at the fair.

The meeting ended with a song from 4-H camp, a fun game of sucking Jell-O out of a straw, and lastly refreshments. The Lyndon Leaders 4-H Club will have their next meeting at 4:30 p.m. March 11, in the Lyndon High School cafeteria.
