ROWDY WRANGLERS 4-H CLUB

4/4/2014

The Rowdy Wranglers 4-H Club met March 10 at the First Christian Church. The theme for this month’s meeting was crazy hair night. Prizes were awarded to Aaron Campbell, who sported a crazy Mohawk, and Lauren Paddock, who had braids, buns and lots of bows! Roll call was answered by, “What city were you born in?” Song leader, Jacob Messinger, led members in the song, “Row, row, row your boat.”

For the program, Samantha Lee presented a talk on the benefits of volunteering. For the club’s annual community service project, members will be helping with some outdoor clean up at the Prairie Paws Animal Shelter April 12. The next meeting will be an exchange meeting with the Rambling Ranchers April 7 at Elliott Hall.

The club was proud to congratulate all participants in Frontier District Club Days. Rowdy Wranglers received top purple in the model meeting category. Other top purple winners were Seth French in senior demo, Carter Hepner with his junior piano solo, Chad Hibdon with intermediate demo, and Monica Vrbas with intermediate demo. The club went on to perform model meeting at Regional Club Day, where it received another purple ribbon. Also bringing home purple ribbons were Chad Hibdon and Monica Vrbas.

This year there are seven members from the club preparing to attend the Citizenship Washington Focus trip June 6-15 to New York City and Washington, D.C. During this trip delegates will be provided the opportunity to take part in workshops on contemporary issues and topics, visit Capitol Hill, government departments, historical sites and memorials. They also will get to learn and tour with youth from other states. The delegates have been hard at work raising money for the trip for the past two years with fundraisers such as parking cars during the River Run car show and running concession stands at various events.
