Lyndon Leaders teach new members about exhibiting at county fairs

By Garrett Shoup, Club Reporter

The monthly meeting of the Lyndon Leaders 4-H Club was held on Sunday, Oct. 14, 2018. It began with a game called “wax museum” for roll call.

Ethan Kneisler, standing in back, gives a presentation on the past 4-H year. A “mini fair” is also shown on the tables, displaying different categories and examples 4-Hers can enter at the fair.

President Ethan Kneisler gave the 4-H council report, which led to discussion on ways to make 4-H Achievement Night better. The club will be hosting this district event for the next two years. Leader’s report included an overview to new families on what to expect when being enrolled in 4-H.

In new business, the club discussed if they wanted to provide a meal at our next meeting. They voted to have pizza. Another topic in new business was adopting a family for the holidays. The club agreed to this activity and that the expense would be covered by the club.

The program for the meeting included activities to help our new members get a taste of what 4-H is all about. Ethan gave a visual presentation on all the activities the club does throughout the year. Next, older members shared why they like 4-H. To get the kids up and moving, a scavenger hunt was the next activity. The members broke into groups and found clues throughout the school that were geared toward 4-H projects.

Last, members broke into stations to experience “mini project meetings”. The kids rotated from the following areas: Foods, woodworking, photography, 3D construction-Legos, and mini fair display. In each station they did hands-on activities to experience what a 4-H project meeting and 4-H fair is like.

Ethan announced the next meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 3, 2018, followed by Achievement Night.
