4-H Council Meeting Report
Council is looking for suggestions for fundraisers. Swine, sheep, and goat tag-ins are in May.
Parliamentary Pro Workshop has been moved to April 16th. Very good for anyone who is a club officer or wants to become one.
Palisade Fruit Fundraiser
Paperwork was handed out to families to begin selling fruit. Peach orders are due June 30th and it is probably best to have pears and apples sold by then as well. (Marcy will get paperwork to other families today 3/11 and then catch up with anyone else).
We will be preparing baskets, etc. for Hot Sulphur Springs Easter Egg Hunt at the town hall at the next meeting April 8th.
The club voted to donate $200 to Kremmling Chamber for their Easter scavenger hunt.
The club voted to donate $100 to Middle Park Fair as fair supporter and to place an ⅛-page ad in the fairbook for $25.
