4-H Happy Hustler reporter Tripp Peterson and his family have been busy this Spring with calving season. The family and friends work together to make sure the calves are healthy and cared for as well as have shots and are tagged.


The Goessel Goal Getters meeting was held on April 6 at 7 p.m. Roll call was if you were an animal, what would you be. It was answered by 29 members, five leaders, and one parent.

The recreation leader was Delaney Gibson. Pledge leader was Grace Meier and Song leader was Kurt Zapata-Blankley.

This month’s meeting was different from most of our meetings, we did it on an app called Zoom.

If you are still interested in 4-H or are enrolled and need to drop or add projects, the deadline is May 1. All other deadlines are still in effect. Some projects and programs are adjusting to online forums.
