LOGAN — On Tuesday, Sept. 3, the Rushcreek River Rats held its 10th meeting of the year. There were 13 members present, and no guests. The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Destiny Kienzle, and the 4-H Pledge was led by Beverly Scalzo. Roll call was taken by Makenzie Munsee, and the format used was your favorite fair animal.
The meeting started by finalizing who was working the food booth during which shift at the Hocking County Fair. Each family is to bring a baked good to the food booth. The club will be working Sunday, Sept. 8, from 6-10 p.m. Club members set up their fair booth on Friday, Sept. 6. After that, anyone in the club who is showing one or more animals got their numbers for the shows and the required paperwork.
After the fair, the club will be holding a car wash and bake sale fundraiser from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Sept. 21 in the Tractor Supply Co. parking lot to raise money for Kyndel Roop. Members will be meeting at the 4-H advisors, Carolyn and Larry Kienzle’s, house to bake the desserts prior to the event.
To conclude the meeting, Destiny Kienzle, Isaac Kienzle, and Makenzie Munsee gave a demonstration on how to get a market goat ready for the fair. Adeline Linder gave a health report and a safety report on 10 myths and fun facts about water and how to stay safe in thunderstorms, respectively. Adriana and Chancie Stewart provided refreshments.
The next meeting will be Sept. 24, at 7 p.m., in the Saint John Church Hall.
