Sherlock Strivers 4-H

The Sherlock Strivers 4-H Club met Feb. 2, with 19 members answering roll call by talking about their favorite pet.

The service committee announced that 164 people attended the club's chili feed for a net profit of $220.18. Members of the club handed out orange pom-poms to each student before the pep assembly to support school spirit. The committee thanked Tyson for the donation of hamburger for the chili.

Members were asked to volunteer their time, bake desserts and hang up flyers for the Honor Flight fundraiser that took place Saturday. The club voted to donate $50 to the Honor Flight.

Several members participated in 4-H Club Days on Feb. 1 at Holcomb High School. Results are as follows: Club skit, top blue; Ashley Mongeau, top blue for senior public speaking; Andrea Brown, blue for junior readings; Adison George, Kayla George and Morgan Hammond, blue for group dance; Willie Haas, top blue for junior public speaking; Katie Mongeau, blue for junior piano solo; Lauren Jones, top blue for junior piano solo; Adison George and Kayla George, top blue for junior demonstration and illustrated talk. Members who received top blue are eligible to attend Regional Club Days in Dodge City on Saturday.

A craft project talk was given by Paige and Halle Jones on making "Hugs and Kisses Bags." Each member made several bags to give away with a note asking them to pass it on. This was in conjunction with the club's monthly Random Act of Kindness (RAOK).

The next meeting will begin at 6 p.m. March 2 in the cafeteria at Holcomb Elementary School.
