A regular business meeting of the Top Performers 4-H club took place on Sunday, Feb. 23 at Sugar Grove Church. There were 41 members and 18 guests present. The pledges were led by flag bearer Graham Carson and member Pierce McCarty. Roll call was taken by secretary Mara Simonson, and each member responded with their favorite flavor of ice cream.
No committee reports were given and the club moved on to unfinished business. The club members all voted in favor of sponsoring a 4-H member for a camp scholarship. The success of the cookies at the blood drive was noted. Advisors collected dues and book fees from all members.
New business was initiated with Nate Warner (owner of Nate Warner Livestock), Jamie May (owner of May Family Show Pigs), and Bryan McCoy informing members, and then answering questions from members on the new regulations for Paylean use for both the county and state fair.
Next, treasurer Ella McCarty reported that the current bank account balance for the club is $353.02. Safety officer Kendal Bickett reported on the effects of social media addiction and ways to avoid this addiction. Due to the amount of time it took to collect club fees, no demonstrations were given.
Kylan Knapp and his recreation committee led the club in an activity called The Drink Straw Relay. All club members enjoyed this fun activity. The meeting was adjourned by club president Kelsey Pettit. The next meeting was scheduled for Sugar Grove Church on Sunday, March 8 at 7 p.m. Demonstrations will be given by Pierce McCarty, Konner May, and Garrett Carson.
