Town ‘N Kountry Kids 4-H Club Blue Group meets

The Town ‘N Kountry Kids Blue Group met on Sunday, Dec. 8, at 4 p.m. at the Letcher Community Center. The 4-H members and families Christmas caroled around Letcher for about one hour before returning to the Community Center for their meeting and Christmas party. Members provided cookies and treats to be made into “goodie trays” for area families. 

The meeting was called to order by President Brady Larson. There were thirty-four youth in attendance. The pledges were led by Ashlee and Brody.  Roll call was  “your favorite thing about Christmas,” starting with the letter ‘A’ and continuing through the alphabet. No secretary’s report was available for the meeting. Payton gave the treasurer’s report. Janet and Roxanne were paid for bills that they had for Fire Safety and Thanksgiving. Delaney Zoss moved to approve the treasurer’s report; Teagan seconded the motion. Club Health Officer Bryce Larson provided tips on “How to stay healthy over the holidays.”  The safety officer’s tip was unavailable.

Committee reports: 

American Education week committee members, Cole and Kelly Wilson, reported on the popcorn and water that was purchased and provided to the Sanborn Central school teachers. 

Thanksgiving meal committee members, Teagen and Memphis Moody, Brady, Bryce and Brooklyn Larson, reported that they put together five meals and placed them at the Courthouse for families in need. Stacy Zoss read a thank you that was received. 

Tree decorating committee members, Ellie and Delaney, reported that they were able to get the tree decorated at the Community Center.  Shay Bechen, Hudson and Ramsey Fouberg reported that they were able to get the tree up and decorated at the courthouse in Woonsocket.  

Old Business:
