Olin 4-H Club

     The Olin 4H Club held its monthly meeting March 3, 2019. The club had to cancel our trip to Ski Snowstar because of the weather. Discussion was held on what to do in place of it with members to bring ideas to our next meeting.

     During our meeting reports were read, and committee group meetings took place with updates given from each group. We will be hosting a taco/potato bar on May 11th for our fundraiser with serving from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. It was voted on to help out at the Olin Fireman’s breakfast on April 14 as well as to host a bake sale. At our April meeting we will be collecting food and household items to donate to Ronald McDonald Family Room at St. Luke’s Hospital as part of our community service project.

     Recognition was given to the members that played 4H basketball on March 2 as they won the Senior division. Reminders were given on the Shoe Box Tote, March 10; 4H clothing event, March 31; and 4H communication event, April 6. Presentations were given by Drew Uthoff on Abraham Lincoln and Rheagyn Uthoff on Seven Ways to Help Insomnia.
