The Prairie Rose 4H club enjoyed a late afternoon of caroling at Moran Manor prior to their monthly meeting. The club also donated a box of FFA fruit to the workers at the Manor. 

Seventeen members and one Cloverbud were present at December’s meeting.

President Zoi Yoho led the business meeting. Reports from officers were approved as read. Kendall Scharff, secretary, read the minutes from last month’s meeting. 

Jenni Armstrong gave a report on her experience at KYLF. 

Committee reports were given by Kelci Botts, leader of the reading project, and Brenda Armstrong, leader of the clothing and buymanship project. 

There was no business to take care of.

Community Leader Kim Schomaker reminded members about Wreaths Across America, which was held Saturday, and 4-H Day scheduled for Feb. 1. She also reminded members about ringing bells at Iola Walmart, which they did Sunday, and the Southwind skating party in Chanute from 6 to 8 p.m. on Dec. 30. Kelci Botts reminded project leaders to make sure they complete their VIP training. 

There were no talks this month. The club held its Achievement Award Night. This year, 100% of all Prairie Rose 4-H members turned in an MIG (Member in Good Standing) record book! They were rewarded with a box of candy. The community leaders also recognized all new members and Cloverbuds. The club also had four members who completed two or more KAPS — Zoi Yoho, Jenni Armstrong, Kason Botts and Gracie Yoho. They were rewarded with a gift card to Walmart. 

Following the meeting the club enjoyed a potluck dinner provided by the parents.

The next meeting will be at 5 p.m. Jan. 11, with “Bring a Friend Night.” Following the meeting the club will enjoy treats and games.
