The High Country Handiworkers 4-H Club met on Monday, May 13 at 7:00 p.m. at the McKee Building at the Ranch in Loveland, Colorado.
Last month, the club went to Sweetheart Lanes for a bowling field trip and had a lot of fun.
Some of our members competed in a cake decorating contest. One member was awarded the sportsmanship award.
The club purchased new t-shirts for members and leaders. They were distributed at the meeting.
This year’s fair parade theme will be “From Wagon Wheels to Ferris Wheels.” Next month we will begin planning our float for the parade.
There were demonstrations about dog tricks, equipment to shear sheep, stenciling and carving wood, essentials for bottle lambs, and working with a market hog.
The next meeting will be on June 10 at 7:00 p.m.
In reviewing last year’s premium book, it appears that workbooks (project manuals) should be submitted at fair with the e-Record for the following projects:
🍀 Outdoor Adventures – At least 6 activities completed.
🍀 Photography – Follow the tips on page 73 of manual, and label all pictures with:
• Camera Used
• Journal Page #
• Photo #
• Date Photo Taken
🍀 Woodworking – Include plans for your project including dimensions and materials used along with your e-Record.
All other project manuals are for reference and should not be brought to fair.
Email Cindy with any questions.
The premium book for 2019 should be available shortly.
