The Jefferson County Fairfield 4-H Clover Kids met 5:15-6:15 p.m. Thursday at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds Activity Building.

Sixteen members participated in making bunny masks and planting pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds to take home. The Clover Kids made and ate healthy bunny snacks made from bagels, cream cheese or peanut butter, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips and pretzel sticks. They had water bottles to drink.

Helping with the activities were ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Steve Beltramea, Eileen Pickard, Heather Pickard, Karen Crossland, Jason Steele, Sophia Mineart, Brandon Hoskins and Isabella Beltramea.

The group’s last meeting this school year will be May 8 at the activity building.

Clover Kids members were reminded they can exhibit two projects at the Jefferson County Fair if they have attended a minimum of two meetings this year and paid dues. Leaders said it is a great learning experience to talk to the judges and exhibit projects at the fair.
