Recap of the October 2013 Meeting

by Shelly Mathis

October 11, 2013 @ 12 p.m.
Kremmling Community Church

Financial Report: The club has $1,203.53 in the bank account.

Old Business:
  • We voted that the Bohall’s could continue using the club’s sewing machines in their classroom - for our club members and for their students, as needed.
  • We raised $423.83 at our summer gymkhana concessions and $536 from our 2011/2013 Kum & Go Booklet sales.
New Business:
  • The club voted (or agreed?) to re-instate prayer and devotions at the beginning of each business meeting. For November's meeting, Molly volunteered to do the prayer and Julie volunteered to give the devotion/scripture.

  • New Officers:
    • Bailey - President
    • Molly - Vice President
    • Julie - Secretary
    • Liberty - Treasurer
    • Audrey & Foster - Rotating Pledge Leaders
    • Ben - Photographer

  • 4-H Enrollment Information - Shelly passed out paperwork. Renewing members need to re-enroll online, print paperwork, and take into CSU Extension Office with their payments by Dec. 31st. New members can fill out the paperwork and deliver to the office in person, along with their payment. They will be added into the system. (The fee is for the entire year, not per project.) We ask that one parent per family signs up as a "chaperone" volunteer leader, because this will give you legal protection when you drive club members on 4-H field trips, etc. Contact Shelly if you missed the meeting and need the paperwork or if you have questions.
  • National 4-H Week - We signed thank-you cards to local businesses who helped us last year.

  • October's Community Service - The club voted to volunteer working the different booths at the 4-H Council Fall Fest on October 25th, from 5-8 p.m. Liberty, Susan, Tish, and Marcy volunteered to bake cupcakes for the cake walk. They need to be delivered to the Extension Hall before 5 p.m. on Oct. 25th.

  • November's Community Service - The club voted to help Bohalls sew adult shirt-savers (bibs) for the residents of Cliffview Assisted Living Center and Kremmling Memorial Hospital. Shelly will contact Bohalls to see if Nov. 15th or 22nd would work for them.

  • Scheduled November and December Meetings – November 15th and December 6th

  • Discussed Refreshments - Do families want to take turns providing snacks/drinks? The club voted yes, and Ben volunteered to bring goodies to the November meeting.

  • Achievement Night - October 18th @ CSU Extension Hall - for last year’s club members

    • Council Officers - Set up begins at 2 p.m.
