The High Country Handiworkers 4-H Club met on Monday, July 16 at 7:00 p.m. at the McKee Building at the Ranch in Loveland, Colorado.
The club discussed our float for the fair parade. The theme is “Country Pride—County Wide.” The fair parade is on July 28 at 9:00 a.m. in downtown Loveland.
Our club will be selling truck raffle tickets on August 3, 4, and 5. All of the money will go to support 4-H programs.
County shoots have been taking place. Congrats to all of our members who have competed.
Members are preparing their projects for county fair.
There were demonstrations about leathercraft, muzzleloading, shooting sports safety, cleaning a muzzleloader, market swine fair supplies, how to keep your rabbit cool in the summer, and taking care of rabbits.
We will be having a potluck after the county shoot in the air-conditioned McKee Building.
We have use of the kitchen, so any cold items can be placed in the fridge. Other items can be placed on the table in the building.
The main dish of fried chicken will be provided. We will also provide plates, plasticware, and drinks. Please feel free to join us and bring anything you wish to share with other families.
The potluck will begin after the county shoot area is cleaned up. The more help we have taking down the range, the sooner we are able to eat.
Awards and presentations will be made after eating. We are using the new Orion scoring system so scoring and placements will hopefully be shared quicker than in years past.
Donations toward the potluck are greatly appreciated.
Contact Anita Ballinger at firstname.lastname@example.org or 970-290-5369 with any questions.

July Club Meeting
Our club meeting will be next Monday, July 16 at 7:00 p.m. in the rooms in the back hall of the McKee Building.
Bring ideas for the club parade float. The theme is “Country Pride—County Wide.”
You may bring your fair entry forms to the meeting. (Cindy cleared it with the Extension office to turn them in after our meeting.) Livestock participants: remember, you will have fees to pay and a code of ethics form to sign as well.
Cindy will be present at 6:00 and stay after for those who would like to have their eRecords signed. Only books that are complete will be signed. Livestock books do not need a leader signature prior to county fair.
This is your last chance to do a demonstration at a club meeting!
Project labels go on the back of your project board. Do not put it in a visible spot like the front of your display board.
A label with the same information also goes on the front of your eRecord folder on the upper front right side. E-records should be in a folder with prongs or a narrow three-ring binder.
