4-H Youth Development

clover4-H is a nationwide program led by state land-grant universities in cooperation with local county/district extension councils. In Kansas, 4-H is the largest youth educational program, aside from public schools. Each of the four H's on the clover represent ways youth can grow and develop in 4-H:

Head: critical thinking, problem solving;
Heart: self-discipline, integrity, communication;
Hands: serving others; and
Health: choosing healthy lifestyles.

In 4-H, youth have fun with a purpose!

For correspondence, there was a thank you card from the Good Shepherd for the Christmas cookies. Benjamin Manus gave the treasurer's report and Isaiah Manus gave the reporter's report. The program was planning for the leadership day camp that will be in the Administration Building on June 9th. The 4 H Foundation has agreed to give the club a donation to cover food and supplies.  The group agreed to get lunch catered sandwiches from Brothers Market again this year.  The format will be the same as last year with older 4Hers teaching project related, hands-on classes.  The leaders asked the kids to look at their calendars and think about what type of class they would like to teach.  Final planning will happen at the next meeting on April 16th. Westyn Reischman adjourned the meeting (motion by Beau Riley and 2d by Corbin Reischman).
