PENN WORKERS 4-H CLUB
The Penn Workers 4-H Club met for its regular meeting Nov. 8.
The meeting started at 7 p.m., with Jade Knapp leading the Pledge of Allegiance, and Shelby Heston leading the 4-H pledge.
Kelly Lacey motioned the club pay all members’ dues; Shelby Heston seconded. The club is paying $70 for seven members.
The club voted to go Christmas caroling. Kelly Lacey and Shelby Heston will contact the nursing homes and report back to the club in December. Tyler Heston motioned the club ring bells for the Salvation Army. Sophie Stratton seconded.
Kelly Lacey gave a presentation on “There’s a Cow in My Marshmallow.” She showed a few things made from cows: ice cream, photo film, combs, lipstick, soap, tires, antifreeze and asphalt.
The club had its Christmas party Dec. 6 at the Jefferson County ISU Extension Office. Leader Kim Lacey provided a potluck as a thank you for a good year to all members.
A $5-gift exchange was held, with a story read to pass the gifts left and right, to determine who received which gift. A game called Wrap Up a 4-H Member for Christmas was played. Jacob Morgan and Jade Knapp were the presents. Prizes were given to all members.
The club rang bells Wednesday at Fairfield Hy-Vee Food and Drug Store and Walmart. They plan to sing at Parkview Care Center and SunnyBrook centers Saturday.
The next meeting will be at 6 p.m. Jan. 6. Guest speaker Rob Nelson will show how to make drop cords as a project.
