LOGAN — On May 21, the Rushcreek River Rats held its fifth meeting of the year. There were 19 members present, and no guests.
Adriana Stewart took attendance, and the format used was, “What is your favorite fruit?” Then, Kya Hoy lead the Pledge of Allegiance, and Chancie Stewart lead the 4-H Pledge. After that, the Cloverbuds broke off to tie-dye t-shirts with Jillyan Adams.
The club then discussed the goat, rabbit, and pig clinics that will be held at the Youth Center, on June 10, 11, and 25 respectively. After that, members went over what community service act the club could do. Members have not decided yet, and members will probably decide next meeting.
Joyce Shriner, a longtime 4-H agent in Hocking County, retired at the end of May. She has been with 4-H for 30 years, and members wish her all the best in her retirement.
To conclude the meeting, Chancie Stewart gave a safety report on staying safe around the pool, and Kya Hoy gave a health report on the benefits of canning food.
Then Destiny Kienzle, one of our recreation officers, lead members in a game called Fruit Basket. Refreshments were provided by Kierin Hoy, Kya Hoy, and Beverly Scalzo.
The next meeting will be held on June 18, at 7 p.m., at the Saint John Church Hall.
