Summary of 4-H news for August 25, 2022

STRASBURG, Ohio — On July 31, the Happy Harvesters 4-H Club launched a new Cloverbud Night hosted by the officers and some older youth. There were six different stations: cooking, learning vows and motto, gardening, fishing, exploring polar science, and scrapbooking.

The purpose of the evening was to let the youngest members experience different projects that they could take on in the future.

Next was the sixth night of the meeting, August 7th. Club photos were taken for the booth and barn displays. Advisors made sure everyone was signed up for trade show entries due the next week. Letters from buyers were discussed and help offered if anyone needed it. Members were asked if they would work a shift at the Clover Cafe during fair week at the Tuscarawas County Fair.

Cloverbuds will be hosting a mini-interview evaluating their Going On A 4-H Adventure project on August 28th. Immediately after the judging the club will have their next meeting and cattle study evening.

Wyema Porter gave a speech about 4-H experiences of older youth. The meeting ended with a quote from Jacob Wisselgren. The club held its annual pizza party to celebrate the end of the ratings call.

Recreation for the night was shopping at an auction fundraiser contest. Each member received points for the work they did for the fundraiser. The number of points collected determines the amount of prizes that members receive when shopping.

Club members Haley Wisselgren and Peyton Vickers made their way to the Holmes County Fair on August 12. They toured the barns and met the new members of the Holmes County Fair.
