Carly Dreher calls the June meeting of the City Slickers 4-H Club to order. Submitted photo.

The monthly meeting of the City Slicker’s 4-H Club was called to order by Club President Carly Dreher on June 13 at the Riverside Park Community Building. 

Roll call was answered with “My Favorite Thing to do in Summer” from 11 members and one community leader. The pledge of allegiance and 4-H pledge was led by Ty Shaughnessy and Thatcher Mueller. Hallie Sutherland gave the treasurer’s reporter and Mueller gave a parliamentarian lesson about the “Object of a Motion.” 

Club members signed up to decorate the food table and hay bale at the fair using “The Roaring 20s” theme.  If you plan to exhibit poultry at the fair, all birds (except waterfowl) must have proof they are pullorum typhoid free. Testing will be conducted on July 9 at the Neosho County Fairgrounds. Members interested in judging contests, clinics or camps are encouraged to read the Southwind Monthly Newsletter to find dates.

The Friends of 4-H Dinner will be at the Iola High School at 6 p.m. on July 20. Members are needed to decorate for the dinner and should report to the high school at 1 p.m. Fairground clean up at the Allen County Fair Grounds will be at 8 a.m. July 17. Final clean-up after the fair will be at 7 a.m. July 26.

Members voted to have the Farm Tour at 1 p.m. on July 11 and will meet at the Nemeceks’ to start the tour. Registration entrees for the fair are accepted from June 15-July 1.  Cloverbuds are encouraged to showcase their exhibits at the fair. Cardboard pickup dates are still undetermined. The next council meeting was June 24 at the Southwind Extension Office.  

For recreation, Ty Shaughnessy led the club in Duck, Duck, Goose. The next meeting will be 4 p.m. July 11 at the Riverside Park Community Building.
