The Kimball Kruisers 4-H Club met Sunday, Oct. 3, at St. Anne's Church in Kimball, starting a new 4-H year. New members and their families were welcomed at the meeting, and all enjoyed pizza. It was great to see many new faces! We are proud to be the largest 4-H club in the Meeker County Federation. For an opening activity with current and new members, Marcia Hilbert had the kids participate in a team building activity Ð how each of the 4-H members is important to the club.
Before the meeting, many members cleaned ditches on the "Golf Course Road." Thanks to all who helped; it was a good turn-out. Five families had also spent part of the afternoon harvesting pumpkins from the club's community garden plot by Bormans. Thanks also to these families.
We received the club's 4-H calendar for the coming year. Lots of fun activities are planned, like skiing at Powder Ridge and roller skating, with many guests speaking about project areas so we hope to see everyone participate.
The members voted on a community project. Kimball Kruisers members will, once again, decorate Willow Creek Park with Christmas lights during the holiday season. We will also be involved with activities when the Holiday Train makes a Kimball stop in December.
To celebrate National 4-H Week, Oct. 3-10, all elementary and high school members will wear their 4-H T-shirts to school on Wednesday, Oct. 6. Also, to promote 4-H, a presentation will be given to the Kimball Elementary third graders on Thursday, Oct. 7.
New officers were elected. They are: president-Jenna Maus, vice president-Chelsey Maus, secretary-Olivia Fischer, treasurer-Shelby Schiefelbein, reporter-Mitchell Hurrle, historian-Cora Gohmann.
New families met with club leaders after the meeting was adjourned. Happy Fall to all!
