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

The Town ‘N Kountry Kids Blue Group met on March 7 at 5 p.m. at the Letcher Community Center.      

As members signed in for roll call, they were asked to make a guess on the amount of candy in a fireman’s helmet.

Outstanding bills to pay were reviewed.  Teagan Moody made a motion, with a second by Dean Hansen, to pay those outstanding bills and to approve the treasurer’s report. Health officer, Bryce Larson, read a book “Staying Safe on the Farm with Jackson” that was donated to the 4-H club. The real life story behind the book was reviewed with everyone. No safety officer report was available.
