Club members were reminded to get 4-H Online enrollment completed and to think about their goals for this next year. 

Emily Ohlrogge gave a committee report for the Christmas Caring project. Committee members were Emily Ohlrogge, Dilyn Brooks, Trevor Johnson, Mary Catherine Hansen and Samuel Hansen, Lane Burkel and Kolby Lindsey. The committee decided to purchase items to create a gift bag of presents for each resident. Emily Ohlrogge and Dilyn Brooks went shopping for the gifts. Mary Catherine Hansen designed Christmas cards for the club to write a personal note. Together, they put the gifts together and wrote the Christmas cards. The committee also decided to create a video to show the residents on their TV’s. Club members created individual videos talking about what they do for Christmas and will combine them into one large video. Trevor Johnson selected Christmas carols to sing. The Christmas bags will be given out to the residents at their Christmas party.

The group talked about project day ideas for over Christmas break. One idea is to make t-shirts or kitchen towels with vinyl graphics like they did with the potholders. Another is a dried flower project. A date will be worked on over Christmas break.

Fun Day suggestions were discussed, including Air Madness, sledding, and ice bumper cars. The club will look at dates over Christmas break and into January.

The next 4-H meeting may be scheduled over Christmas break. 

Following the meeting, Paige Anderson presented an illustrated talk on how she created a visual arts drawing project with crayons and water. Alex Anderson gave an illustrated talk on making a cat toy on a wood stand. Then, the group walked over to the island to sing some Christmas carols for a video they are making for the residents at Prairie View Healthcare for Christmas.
