4-H Federation Meeting Notes - Jan 25

The CWC 4-H Federation met on January 25th in the Land Services Building. Adult Treasurer Kathy Segler reported that the audit it taking place and a meeting is planned with the auditor to review the suggestions the first week of February.

In the PC report Jeanne talked about the Technology Committee still needing youth, Camp Counselor Applications are on the Extension website & the blogsite, a new gardening project club is forming & will have space at the fairgrounds for gardens, Share-the-Fun will be at St Francis of the Lakes School on April 18.

Jessica Gravdahl, the Alliance With Youth Promise Fellow, reported that she will be starting in with students on February 8th. She is also looking for 4-H members for a possible service learning club.

We ordered 500 platbooks from Lakes Printing and they should be delivered the first week in February. The changes purposed for the By-Laws and Constitution were approved.

We are looking for a new Youth President for the Federation. If you know someone willing to serve, contact Jeanne. The materials for fruit sales was passed out to the clubs present. It was approved that we also sell meat from Swicky Meats along with the fruit. A short discussion of changes for the fair premium book was held. A committee is forming to working on the changes - please contact Jeanne if you're interested in working on this committee.

Many of the PDC's are having fundraisers. The Performing Arts PDC is planning an Arts-In day camp in July. The Cloverbud PDC would like a Cloverbud Day Camp in June put on by older 4-H members.
