Jackson Hot Shots

The Jackson Hot Shots 4-H Club met May 24 at the Everton Community Building. The meeting was called to order by President Kyle Downard. The American Pledge was led by Hannah Evans, and the 4-H pledge by Kyler Lykins. Group singing was led by Eli Barger, Ezekiel Horning, and Emma Jennings. The treasurer’s report was read by Kyle Downard.

Twenty-three members present answered roll call to their favorite sport. Lacy Downard gave a health and safety report on sun safety and avoiding poison plants. Demonstrations were given by Kaylynn Steele on arts and crafts, Hannah Evans on leathercraft, and Peyton Gabbard on goat.

Prior to the meeting, some club members had met at the Everton Cemetery to put flags on graves for Memorial Day weekend. An update was given regarding that activity.

Recreation was Heads Up Seven Up. Refreshments were provided by the Hoffman, Horning, and Jennings families.

At the eighth meeting of the Vanguards 4-H Club, 15 members responded to the roll call by telling their birth dates. Out of the 15, two individuals had birth dates the same date.

The Pledge to the American Flag was led by Ryliegh Daugherty and the 4-H Club Pledge was led by Katie Hamilton. For singing, we enjoyed “Boy and Girl in a Little Canoe.”

Owen Good gave a demonstration about his brushbot, telling how he made it, then demonstrating its operation. Katie Hamilton showed her scrapbook made for Mini Garden last year. Both did a nice job on their demonstrations.

Under business, all 4-H’ers should have gotten the latest newsletter. It is important that all read the newsletter and note significant events. One is YQCA training for all livestock members. The next opportunity is June 16, with two sessions available that day. Mini 4-H Day Camp and Workshops were on June 6 and 7. All 4-H’ers having projects in Expo Hall were reminded to go online and enter information for their projects. This is due by July 6. This is just some of the information available in the newsletter.

Levi Marszalek gave a health and safety report on knife safety. Many young people enjoy having a knife and it is important to know proper handling procedures and how to care for your knife. Levi also read the devotions, which was about dolphins and some of their behavior characteristics and their devotion to all members of their pod. It sets an example for us humans.

Refreshments were served by Ryliegh Daugherty and Gracie Brewer.

The next meeting will be from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. June 12 at the Bergman home. All were reminded to check their program books to see who will give demonstrations and serve refreshments.
