The afternoon began with a project meeting at 4:30 p.m. In the project meeting, the club created posters to hang at the Melvern and Quenemo schools to promote 4-H for National 4-H Week. At 5:03 p.m. October meeting was called to order by President Braelyn McNally.

The club began their meeting with The Pledge of Allegiance and 4-H Pledge led by Braelyn. Secretary Allie Reeser called roll, members and parents were to answer with “their favorite Halloween candy.” There were nine members and six adults present.

Allie then read the minutes from the last meeting; they were approved as read. Treasurer report was read by Vice President Justin Brinkley; it was approved as read. Reporter Bella Reeser stated she submitted one article to the newspaper.

In leader’s report, Leader Lisa Reeser reminded members to read over meeting notes sheet; to send thank yous for fair trophies; congratulations to all KSF participants, parent KAP judges; National 4-H week is this week; it’s a new 4-H year; the Melvern Fall Festival is Oct. 31; and achievement night is Nov. 7.

In old business the club discussed their role at the Melvern Fall Festival.

In new business, Lisa asked members to be thinking of their December meeting and if we still wanted to go caroling and send care packages to service men and women.

In songs, Amelia Arb and Bella Reeser led the club in singing “I’m a little Tea Pot”.

At 5:29 p.m. it was moved and seconded to adjourn the meeting. The club then enjoyed a recreation game called “wrap the mummy” and refreshments provided by the Roy family.
