Smyrna Guys & Gals 4-H Club

Greensburg — The Smyrna Guys & Gals 4-H Club started their April 16 meeting with host Kyle Norton giving his demonstration on his show pigs.

He explained their ages, feed schedule, and different markings. He then surprised the group with showing a mother cat and her kittens.

Then president Emma Spreckelson presided over the meeting with Blaine Schroeder leading in the American pledge. Mini 4-Her Ali Norton led the 4-H pledge.

New business was that a new county poultry club is being formed with meetings the last Thursday of each month.

There will be a Mini 4-H Camp on June 20 for grades K, 1, 2.

The club will participate in helping the Henryville Library collect books after the tornado in March destroyed it. Members are asked to bring new or gently used books for grades K-6 to the May 19 meeting. This meeting will be at 12:30 p.m. at Deb and Mel Obermeyer's Alpaca Farm, Oldenburg. We will eat lunch there and tour their farm.

Old business was gone over that May 15 is the drop/add date and the date all livestock forms need to be turned in.

Sheep and goat tagging is May 12.

All are encouraged to apply for the 4-H trips and camps.
