Goessel 4-H hosted new extension agent at April meeting

The April meeting of the Goessel Goal Getters 4-H Club started with a visit from Extension Agent Bret Toews. Toews shared about exciting new opportunities for our club, such as a tour of Countryside Feed which could help 4-H members with some of their projects.

Toews informed the group about having a booth at the Arts and Crafts Fair this year to showcase items

made and even sell some of the projects. He spoke about the importance of setting goals as a life-long skill and how keeping record books can help with this.

Roll Call was “What is your favorite color?” It was answered by 18 members, four leaders, seven parents and one guest for a total of 30 people present.

The Pledges were said by Grace Meier, and the Happy Birthday song was led by Mason Voth. Brooklyn Tucker led stick horse races for recreation. The Treasurer’s report was given by EV Cannon.

Community Leader Suzanne Meier announced some new opportunities this year for the fair, such as designing buttons.

Tucker gave a presentation about Barrel Racing, and Voth shared some cattle breeds.

Cannon also talked about how to make peanut butter energy bites and all got samples.

The next meeting will be on Monday, May 6 at the Goessel High School Library.
