The High Country Handiworkers 4-H Club met on Monday, June 11 at 7:00 p.m. at the McKee Building at the Ranch in Loveland, Colorado.
The club asked for volunteers to organize the float for the fair parade. The parade will be July 28 at 9:00 a.m. and the theme for this year is “Country Pride—County Wide.”
The club talked about the 4-H dress code and what is appropriate, especially during the summer.
Members who competed in the Cake Decorating and Performing Arts competitions talked about the results.
There were demonstrations about the parts of a 22. pistol, how to turn a sweater into a hat and leg warmers, form for archery, preparing and sandblasting parts for rebuilding a tractor, parts of a compound bow and arrows, protecting dogs from heart worms, different types of arrows, and project planing for woodworking.
Volunteers from the Colorado 4-H Foundation golf tournament talked about their experience and the funds raised for 4-H programs.
The next meeting will be held on Monday, July 9, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.
Reminder that we are hosting a 4-H Demonstration Night on Friday beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the McKee Building Exhibition Hall. The club is providing dinner and drinks. This was requested by the club members to help everyone get their demonstrations done.
Remember, all 4-H participants must do a demonstration as one of the requirements to complete. Only one demonstration is required per participant. Members can do demonstrations together if they would like. Even if you do not have a demonstration to present, please plan on coming to support fellow club members.
If you need to do a demonstration but don’t know what to do or how to go about it, please email Cindy. She and Anita will help you out.
All of the following projects fall under the category of “General Projects.”
