4-H CLUB: Fairview Willing Workers

Submitted by Eli Geisendorf, Reporter

The monthly meeting for the Fairview Willing Workers took place on Monday, April 11, at the Fairview Community Building. The meeting was called to order at 6 p.m. by President Jake Rieger. Huck Lowdermilk and Ben Geisendorf led the club in the Pledge of Allegiance and the 4-H Club Pledge. Members then completed roll call by answering if they were present and making a funny face at the same time.

Twenty-one members and 15 parents were present. Malachi Maas then led the club in singing happy birthday to club members Annika Reschke and Alise Reschke, who had April birthdays. Jenna Geisendorf read the clubs treasurers’ report and Eli Geisendorf stated that the monthly report was submitted to local newspapers.

Old business for the club consisted of the Easter Egg hunt on Good Friday, April 8, at the Fairview Park. The club members met prior to the meeting to fill eggs to hide for the Fairview community members. The egg hunt took place at 4 p.m. and each member brought two dozen cookies. Club members helped with a concession stand fundraiser on April 2, which was successful.

Other announcements for the club were that swine, sheep and goat weigh-in would be at the fairgrounds from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, April 29, and was optional. May 1 was the last day to sign up online for 4-H projects, Brown County Extension Office will hold day camps June 1-4, and June 1-3 are Discovery Days. The next meeting date changed due to upcoming Graduation weekend and the club agreed to move to 6 p.m. Sunday, May 8.

Louis Rettele presented a program about his bow. He showed the club members the parts and purpose of the bow and how to use it when shooting.

After completing the program, Avery Baumgartner moved to adjourn the meeting and Malachi Maas seconded. The club then recited the 4-H motto “to make the best better” and enjoyed snacks provided by the Meyer family.

The next meeting was at 6 p.m. Sunday, May 8, at the Fairview Community Building, and hosted by the Miller family.
