Recap of February 2018 Meeting

by Shelly Mathis

Meeting Date: February 9, 2018

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.

Old Business
There was no old business to discuss.

New Business

March’s Business Meeting
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.

Palisade Fruit Fundraiser
The club voted to continue this fruit fundraiser for this year.  
Shelly handed out the fundraising packets including instructions, spreadsheets, and contact cards.
Please let her know if you have any questions.

Community Service
The club voted to purchase 150 cookies from Starla Rindt for Kremmling’s Easter Egg Hunt on March 31st.

The club voted to help the Hot Sulphur Springs Chamber’s Easter Egg Hunt.
We will stuff plastic eggs with candy at our March meeting.
We will also give a donation of $125 to help with their luncheon.  

The club will not volunteer for grounds maintenance at Cliffview in March since the month is full.

District Retreat Scholarship
The club voted to institute a one-time District Retreat Scholarship of $50 first-year club members.
First-year members don't have a chance to earn club or council trip assistance so this will help them attend.
