4-H Club Stateliners
Submitted by Wiliam Edelman
The regular monthly meeting of the Stateliners 4-H Club was held on Oct. 30 at the Bern Community Park. The Flag Salute, 4-H Pledge and 4-H Motto were led by Collin and Ethan Jost. The club was led in singing “The Leaves are Falling Down” by Lindy Mosteller.
Roll call was completed, a quorum was present, and the club welcomed Eddie and Terry Niehues and Adalynn Edelman as guests. Each individual officer followed by the Club Leaders gave officer reports. There was no old or new business. The meeting was adjourned.
Following the meeting, club members enjoyed refreshments and played at the Bern City Park. The club then participated in the Bern Fall Festival and Pancake Feed by serving drinks and clearing tables. While the members did take their jobs very seriously, they were still able to make time to enjoy the variety of fall games made available by the Bern Community Library.
Several Stateliners joined with other area 4-Hers at NorthRidge Church in Sabetha on Nov. 3 for an area wide 4-H officer training. The training was started with a game to intermingle 4-Hers and gain connections. After the introduction, attendees were broken up into groups by their office. While in the groups, attendees learned more about what their officer duties were.
Our number one take away from the training was, even if what you are doing is hard, have fun! Overall, the training was a good learning experience for the officers.
