The monthly meeting of the Homesteaders 4-H club was held on September 14, 2012 at the Kremmling Extension Office.

The president, Shyla Bohall, called the meeting to order at 2:54 P.M. and Audrey Wheatley lead the pledges.  Roll call was Aspen or Pine trees.  There were seven members and three adults in attendance.  Liberty Mathis moved that we table the minutes to the next meeting, and Julie Aprill Seconded it; the motion passed.  Liberty Mathis gave the Treasurer's report for The months of August and September.  Molly moved to except the Treasurer's report and Audrey Wheatley seconded it; the motion passed.

The Old Business was the Cloverbud day camp, which we decided to postpone until February.  

New Business was, Community service ideas.  We will continue doing tray favors. The Bohalls are doing November and the Aprills are doing December.   It was suggested this we volunteer to help at the library.

For fundraisers, we decided to participate in the preschool craft fair again this year, and will be making more potholders.

We discussed field trip ideas.  Suggestions were: visiting the Colorado Wildlife Experience, touring the mine in Craig, and going to a dairy farm.  Liberty Mathis suggested the Fiber Fun Fest in Larimer County.  Other ideas were Camping and Geocaching.

Achievement Night, 4-H open house, is to be held October 12th at six P.M.  at the Granby middle school.
