At 5:12 p.m., the meeting was called to order by President Gradey McNally. The club began their meeting with The Pledge of Allegiance and the 4-H Pledge, led by Gradey. Secretary Allie Reeser called the roll; both club members and parents were to answer with, “Would you rather have a personal maid or a personal chef?” There were five members and two adults present.
