The first meeting of the Busy Bees 4-H Club was Monday, Oct. 7, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Crossroads, according to news reporter Bethany Moll.

Before the meeting was held, Katie Johnson, Purdue Extension educator, installed the new officers. The members also played the Listening Game.

President Jenna Huber called the meeting to order. There were 18 members and three leaders present. The American and 4-H pledges were led by Jenna Huber and Sydney Lecher. The roll call was each member stating her name, school, grade and number of years in 4-H.

Charity Frommeyer read “A Walk in the Country” for the devotion. Lila Nuhring and Taylor Rowlett led the group in singing “Happy Birthday” and “4-H Spirit.”

Members’ pins, enrollment forms and new club packets were passed out. Enrollment forms are due at the November meeting. A thank-you note was read, thanking the club for sponsoring the Pygmy Goat Trophy. The 4-H corporation annual meeting and dinner will be Nov. 18. Members are encouraged to attend.

Demonstrations were given by Katie Schneider on what not to do for a demonstration; Jessica Meer, octopus cupcake; Sydney Lecher, sugar cookies; Megan Huber, chocolate covered pretzels; and Jenna Huber, Ham snack wrap-ups.
