This year’s 4-H Summer Bash on June 1, 2012 was a success! Over 40 people attended the event, making this year’s bash the most successful and popular yet. 4-H’ers enjoyed delicious hamburgers, hotdogs, and other side dishes, kicking off the beginning of summer with a pot-luck picnic.
4-H’ers from Average Joe’s, County Council, Hare Raisin’ Homesteaders, J.D. Cooking Club, Ochs Garden Club, and other clubs attended the bash. Colleen McNelis and Keri Hannukainen, both graduating seniors, gave their farewell speeches during the County Council elections. Jared McNelis led Minute to Win It, which created a fun and light-hearted atmosphere. A curious alligator even showed up during the bash along the edge of the lake shore to help us celebrate.
The County Council elections were held during the bash and are:
· President: Lacey Steele (Hare Raisin’ Homesteaders)
· Vice-President: Emily Vines (Hare Raisin’ Homesteaders)
· Reporter: Abby Vines (Ochs Garden Club)
· Historian: Cheyenne Schoeppner (Hare Raisin’ Homesteaders)
· Sergeant of Arms: Jared McNelis (Hare Raisin’ Homesteaders)
The elections for secretary and treasurer will be held soon.
