Thank you to outgoing officers!
New officers - please let me know if you need information for your office or if you have questions.
Operation Christmas Child - the club voted to participate again this year.
I suggest Petefishes, Krempins, and Harms get together one day to shop in Granby for 4 kids, and Kenna, Ben, Audrey and Wutzes get together one day in Kremmling to shop for the other 2 kids.
Budget is $20-23 per child/shoebox.
I will send out recommendations of what to purchase for the shoeboxes and what not to buy.
If anyone has shoeboxes to use, please bring those for shopping as it is easier for the kids to figure out what will fit. If there aren’t enough shoeboxes, then a plastic bin can be purchased at the Dollar Store that is same size as a shoebox.
Shopping should be completed before meeting--achievement awards potluck on Nov.13th
Please bring filled shoeboxes November 13th so they can be taken to a drop off location the next week.
Susan Wall--can Tim take the shoeboxes to Dillon Community Church again sometime from November 16-23?
Donations - the club voted to donate $100 to West Grand Wishes, $100 to Joyful Givers, and $200 to Middle Park 4-H Council.
Community Tree Lightings
Granby’s is Dec 4th - Tish will check what their restrictions will be and how we can participate. If we have to individually wrap cookies, then we will bow out.
Kremmling - Chamber would like us to provide cookies again.
Brandy Heitzenrater can make cookies for us at cost. She will get back to me on what “cost” is.
Families will also make cookies themselves to provide for Kremmling.
Club Achievement Night/Club Meeting/Potluck - November 13th
Council is paying each club $5/member for that club’s achievement awards celebration. We will have ours in conjunction with our next 4-H meeting on November 13th. Awards for our club will be picked up at the extension office to be handed out.
It was suggested that we have the meeting at 5 PM. Then we can eat at 6 PM and have awards. Dads are encouraged to come.
Location will be at 6761 County Road 22 -- at our ranch in a barn. Please dress for the weather. We will be protected from wind and hope to have a burn pit or two in the barn. There is electricity in the barn for crockpots, etc. More info will follow as we get closer.
