Busy 4’s 4-H Club live up to name

The Busy 4’s 4-H Club lived up to its name by keeping busy during the holiday season.

Nov. 21, the club held its annual Deer Hunter’s Breakfast and the business meeting was held the same day. The Christmas tree at the Baden Community Center was decorated by the club on Nov. 28. The club voted to buy toys for the Toys for Kids program. The shopping was done by Emily Keefer and Emily Parsons and then dropped off for distribution. The next activity was caroling to the residents at Lakin on Dec. 12.

Dec. 19, the club held its meeting, Emily Parsons called the meeting to order. Jessie Raynes read “The Christmas Story” for meditations. Reports were given on previous activities. Cake mixes and frosting were collected for the church pantry.

Members were challenged to bring a plastic bag receipt to the January meeting and the other recycled item of the month were leftover Christmas cardboard boxes. Members were to make a bird feeder out of recycled items. Date of upcoming state activities were announced. A box was set out to collect donations to be sent to help out fellow 4-Hers in Sevier County, Tenn. who were victims of the devastating brush fires.

After the meeting was adjourned, games were played, gifts were exchanged and everyone enjoyed lots of goof food. The next meeting was to be on Jan. 16.
