Recap of June 2017 Meeting

Meeting Date: June 9, 2017

Officer Round Robin

Many thanks to the members who learned how to be officers in this meeting: Foster - Pledge Leader and Audrey - President.  You did a super job!
Ben’s 4-H Council Meeting Report: The vote on county trip assistance will be at the July council meeting (following the fairgrounds cleanup for fair).  Lacy is looking for 4-H volunteers to walk around the Town Square during Kremmling Days to sell truck raffle tickets.  This is a county fundraiser, and you can earn trip assistance if you participate.  Lacy is looking for volunteers to ride in the 4-H truck during the Kremmling Days parade.  Contact her by Monday, June 12th, if you are interested!
