4-H Council Meeting Report

Ben reported that the Council is going to hold a truck raffle ticket sale at City Market on May 12.  
If you want to volunteer to sell tickets, this is a way you can earn Council trip assistance.  
Contact the office if you’re interested in volunteering.  
You may pick up truck raffle tickets from the office to sell personally, as well.  

The Council plants to participate in the Hot Sulphur Springs and Kremmling Days parades.  
Stay tuned for more details.

The Council decided to plan a Parli-Pro Workshop on November 9th.

The club voted via email to move March’s business meeting to Friday, March 2nd.  
It will be held at Krempin’s house following the tubing party.

Meeting Date: January 12, 2018

4-H Council Meeting Report
Ben reported that the council reviewed the 2018 budget and made some necessary changes.  Also, Achievement Night is being moved back to October rather than November.

Old Business
Community Service
Our $75 Christmas gift donation to the Hot Sulphur Springs/Parshall Fire Department was returned to us because they did not conduct the toy drive this year.

Tubing Party
We are still postponing this event due to the lack of snow.  The moms discussed options, and then Tish came up with a secondary option.  Shelly will email the club and ask for a vote of preference between the two dates.

New Business 
Reimbursement
The club voted to reimburse Brady Mathis $15 that he paid for our club’s annual domain name registration fee.

Shelly will submit an invoice for one printer toner cartridge for the club to reimburse.  This will be her one reimbursement for the year.

Trip Assistance
4-H members who are 10 and above as of Dec. 31, 2017, may attend District Retreat in March.

Let the leaders know if you are attending District Retreat!  Please email Marcy or Shelly to inquire about the trip assistance amount you earned during last year’s sales.  Once Audrey knows who is going, she will write a single check to the office to cover our club’s trip assistance amount for all club attendees.

Leadership Activity
We are going to provide leadership opportunities for club members at our business meetings.  Each month, a volunteer will select, prepare, and lead the club in a game activity.  Shelly will email a 4-H game document from which a game can be chosen.  (If you have an idea of your own for a team-building game, let her know and you can give it a try when it’s your turn.)

Members who participate can write this down in your record books as a Junior Leader or Leadership Activity.
