The September meeting of the Seekers-Not-Slackers 4-H club was “Parent’s Night.” All parents assumed the duties of the club and their children, in order to show the reversal of roles and how to run an orderly meeting. 

Roll call was “What do you like best about the Kansas State Fair?” The most popular answer was food.

Club leaders reminded everyone that record books were due to the Extension office for judging as well as pin applications. Countywide Achievement Night will be  at 6 p.m. Nov. 10 in Garnett with a soup supper and awards to follow.  

Program was given by Blake Thompson on the importance of herd vaccines and how to use a dart gun when doctoring cattle. Special grandparent guest speaker was Connie Thompson who gave a cooking demonstration on how to make Kincaid Fair Cheesecake, which she shared as part of refreshments after the meeting.

It was also the election of officers night. 2021-2022 Officers are as follows: President, Logan Walter, Vice President, Gunner Ellington, Secretary, McKenna Powell, Treasurer, Owen Thompson, Reporter, Blaine King, and Historian, Lizzie Ellington.

The meeting was closed by members saying the 4-H Motto. The next meeting will be at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 23, at the King house.
