4-H club officers attended Douglas County Officer Training on Oct. 27 at the Douglas County 4-H Fairgrounds.
Kim Davis, the Douglas County youth and development agent, started the training with a communication exercise.
The group then split into smaller groups based on offices.
Ashley Lesser, a seven-year member of the Stull Busy Beavers, attended the training to learn more about how to be junior president. She learned about making motions. Kim Stewart showed song leaders the enthusiasm needed to get members on their feet and singing.
After training for offices, the group then played a game in which the objective was to make a snack by passing motions according to parliamentary procedures.
