Marion 4-H club held Dec. meeting

Christmas caroling was organized and held at Hilltop Manor and St. Luke’s Living Center before the Happy Hustler’s 4-H Club monthly meeting. The club split into two groups and sent one group to each location to sing a variety of carols. Fruit baskets were left as a Christmas gift from the club.

The December meeting began at 7 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 6 at the Marion County Lake Hall. The flag salute was led by Eli Groening and the 4-H Pledge by Clayton Thomas. Club members were encouraged to stand up and say their answers clearly during roll call as a reminder by the substitute Parliamentarian. Roll call was “name something you want for Christmas.” Roll call was answered by 23 members, three leaders, and nine parents.

Shelby Summervill gave the treasurer’s report. Amy Summervill gave the community leader‘s report. Club officers were reminded to complete officer training before Jan. 10. Yearly club dues are being collected.

The club voted to collect chapstick at our next meeting for Marion Elementary School. Members signed thank you notes to club sponsors. Cookie platters for our club sponsors were assembled and dispersed for delivery.

Allyson Vogel led members in singing Happy Birthday to December birthdays for music appreciation. A gift exchange was held. Refreshments of Christmas cookies and hot apple cider were provided by the Edmundson and Salsbury Families.

The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Jan 3 at the Marion County Lake Hall.
