On Sunday, Nov. 6, 2022, the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club held its monthly club meeting at the Melvern Community Center. At 5:01 p.m., the 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. Historian Allie Reeser called roll, and members and parents answered with, “What is your favorite food at Thanksgiving Dinner?” There were eight members and five adults present. Allie read the minutes from the last meeting; they were approved as read.

Treasurer Gradey McNally read the treasurer’s report; it was approved as read. Reporter Bella Reeser stated she submitted one article to the newspaper. In historian report, Allie shared “4-H Fun Facts” about how 4-H got its name. In leader’s report, leaders Caleb McNally and Lisa Reeser thanked members for attending Achievement Night and Trunk or Treat. They also reminded members to write thank yous to the Lions Club, and that officer training will be Dec. 22 at Lyndon High School.

In old business, club members voted and approved a new club T-shirt design (Please let Lisa know your sizes as soon as possible). In new business, it was moved and seconded to adopt the residents of the Mays House in Melvern, Christmas carol at homes, and deliver fruit baskets for December’s meeting.

Officer elections were also held: President, Gradey McNally; vice-president, Braelyn McNally; secretary, Allie Reeser; treasurer, Landon Roy; reporter, Bella Reeser; historian, Levi Arb and Harper Melton, council reps, Braelyn McNally and Allie Reeser; song leaders, Khloe Rice and Gentry McNally; and recreation, Nathan Ferris.
