The Creative Clovers United 4-H Club has been hard at work this summer. During the recent Farm to Pantry Food Drive, the Clovers donated a total of 408 food products, the second highest amount from any club! As an award, Club Officers received a water balloon fight kit to be used at their annual end of the year celebration.

Through past meetings many special guests have also been spotted. The club would like to thank Chef Kibby for a past presentation.

At the final meeting on July 8, held at the Union County Extension Office, club members prepared for the Union County Fair, where they will be seen in the parade held on Sunday, July 21.

The Kidding Around 4-H Club met at Libby and Will Ramge's house on June 23. The club gathered to create and paint fair signs for our goat pens! Cora Bowman gave the Treasurer's Report with a successful fundraiser completed at Buffalo Wild Wings and donations received from Rural King.  Every member completed their blue project entry cards for their fair projects. Once the craft was finished, the club discussed and finalized T-shirt designs. Another topic that was brought up involves different activities during fair week that our club will create and supervise. These activities will be held in order to educate learners and to have fun. The club will be taking a field trip to the Logan County Fair July 11 to watch their Goat Showmanship Show. Our next meeting will be a cookout at Riley and Maci Sherick's house on July 13. During the meeting our club will make decorations for the parade and finish up fair festivities.
