Minutes for October's Meeting

by Secretary Julie Aprill

The monthly meeting of the Homesteaders 4-H club was held October 19th, 2012 in the Sew it Seamz classroom.

President Shyla Bohall called the meeting to order at 1:08 P.M. Due to the absence of Audrey Wheatley, no one lead the pledges.  There were five members and three adults in attendance.  The secretary forgot to bring the minutes, so Ben Mathis moved that we start reading Minutes next month; Liberty Mathis seconded it.  Liberty Mathis gave the Treasurers Report for September; Bailey Monnahan moved to accept it, and Ben Mathis Seconded.

Old Business:
Tray Favors: The Mathis family will do them in November, in December the Aprills will do it, and Molly Scruggs will be in charge of the January tray favors.  For the Craft Show we will continue to make pot holders; we discussed making a different kind of pot holder and agreed to raise the prices on them this year.  We will be making more every-day ones, and sewing them at the November meeting.

New Business:
We reimbursed the Bohalls for the fabric they bought for the club.  Miss Carolyn asked us if we wanted a booth or if we would just help out at the Fall Fun Fest. We decided to help her wherever needed.   We also donated $32 for her to buy candy for it.  For this Christmas we decided to sponsor Helen at the hospital and also be looking for people at Cliffview and Mountain Family Center.  Our budget is $50 for anyone we choose to sponsor.  We will be drawing names at the next meeting for the gift exchange and bringing cookies to the December meeting.  This year we will be taking cookies to show the businesses that support us some gratitude; we will deliver them at the next meeting.  

Shoebox ministry is getting ready to send the boxes off. We will be doing eight boxes, four boys four girls.  The set price per box is $13. We will be meeting on November 7th to go to Steamboat to shop, and on the 8th we will pack them with the Christian school.

Julie Aprill moved that we donate $50 to the Awana program for general use; Ben Mathis seconded it  the motion passed.  Next meeting will be the 16th of November.  Ben Mathis moved that we adjourn, and Julie Aprill seconded it.
