At 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 8, 2023, the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club met at Fusion Alley, in Ottawa, Kan., and enjoyed an hour of bowling. At 4:01 p.m., the meeting was called to order by President Gradey McNally. The club began the meeting with The Pledge of Allegiance and 4-H Pledge led by Gradey. Secretary Allie Reeser called the roll; members and parents were to answer with, ‘Would you rather have butterfly wings or a horses tail?’ There were eight members and six adults present. Allie read the minutes from the previous meeting; they were approved as read.

In correspondence, Allie shared two letters; one from Extension agent Jo Hetrick-Anstaett wishing the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club a Merry Christmas. The second letter was from Don and Ann Becker, thanking the club for coming to their house to Christmas carol.

Treasurer Landon Roy read the treasurer’s report; it was approved as read. Reporter Bella Reeser stated she submitted one article to the newspaper. There was no historian’s report.
