June 3 was the annual open public meeting at Old Town Campground. The Hillbillies opened the meeting up for the public as well as the Hobo Cloverbuds to see exactly how a 4H meeting is conducted. They combined meetings with their monthly activity by having a potluck and swimming party after the meeting. Javin Roush, Bryce Fields, Justin Roush, and Trey Gilkey spoke on sunscreen safety during their scheduled meeting program.
The Hillbillies 4H Club met for its monthly meeting on July 11 at the White Church Community Building. The club discussed many upcoming activities including trash pick up Aug. 1 at 6 starting at Letart Community Building (meeting to follow), fair parade Aug. 5 at noon on Main Street in Point Pleasant, and fair projects check in on Aug. 6 from 1- 5 p.m. at the fairgrounds. The September meeting date has been moved to Sept. 5 due to scheduling the festival fundraiser that the club organizes every year. The soup and ice cream sale (all handmade by the members) will be Sept. 16.
