The club also met Oct. 10 at the Stull United Methodist Church Faith and Friendship Center. It was the club’s achievement night, so a potluck supper with meat provided from Famous Dave’s was shared by all club families in attendance. Parliamentarian Elizabeth Donaldson shared ‘how to properly use the gavel’ at club meetings. Historians Baylee Wulfkuhle and Madison Wulfkuhle shared the meaning of the four ‘H’s of 4-H. The club voted to adopt four grandparents from Douglas County Senior Services for Christmas. For the program, members shared one 4-H activity they participated in this past year and one highlight of their 4-H year. The members also received a small goody bag for their achievements. The club adjourned the meeting by stating the 4-H motto, “to make the best better.” The next club meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Stull United Methodist Church Faith and Friendship Center.
