For old business, members talked about the eight new tables purchased and donated to the Community Center with the Woonsocket American Legion. Fruit orders are due next week, and every family should sell at least five boxes. The club needs to finalize plans to go to Air Madness.

Under new business, the group discussed community service projects and the animal project changes. Leader Paula Linke talked about some possible photography changes. Barrel setting over Memorial Day weekend was also planned.

Following the meeting, the club completed a number of activities. They signed thank you cards for their sponsors. They completed a Horticulture ID activity and a CDM judging activity on toys.  They made a Life Saver project to give to people who they are thankful for, and made three tie blankets that will be donated to McCrossan Boys Ranch as part of the State 4-H Youth Council Statewide Community Service project.
