Sherlock Strivers 4-H

Sherlock Strivers 4-H

The Sherlock Strivers 4-H Club met Dec. 9 at Holcomb Elementary School, with 19 members answering roll call with what they wanted for Christmas.

After saying the 4-H Pledge and Pledge of Allegiance, old business was discussed. Seven club members and their parents rang bells for the Salvation Army at Sam's Club on Dec. 8, and seven stockings were prepared for military members who are overseas. Also in old business, the club discussed the annual 4-H Awards Banquet, held in November, and the requirements for earning an award. Members also donated loose change to the Emmaus House.

New business included a discussion on the club helping with the annual Honor Flight Chilli Feed, which will be Jan. 19. The club will work two shifts and will help to provide desserts and something for the silent auction.

Parent Matt Jones reported that Livestock Super Saturday was coming up. The event will be held Jan. 26, and will consist of overviews on showing and raising various livestock species in 4-H. All parents and 4-Hers interested in getting involved in this aspect of 4-H are encouraged to attend.

Once the business meeting was over, 4-Hers had refreshments and were led by Lauren Jones in a variety of holiday games.

The next meeting will be Sunday at the Holcomb Elementary School cafeteria.
