Crazy Critters 4-H Club

The Crazy Critters 4-H Club held their last meeting on July 19.

For old business, we discussed our recent fund-raisers with a good bake sale and doing the snack bar at the spring show. The spring show was June 11, and it was a great day with good clinics and judging experience for our members. Day camp has been cancelled due to low enrollment numbers. Our project leaders are scheduling more project meetings as needed. We finalized ideas for fair decorations.

Under New Business: This year we decided to donate to two local groups, giving $100 to each ARF and Grub Club. We also discussed record books and expectations. Project leaders will be available for completion and answering questions.

The next meeting will be Aug. 10 at 1 p.m. for making fair decorations and getting ready for fair. We will also meet Aug. 16 to decorate at the fair and turn in our record books
