The second class meeting for Kathy Heath’s 4-H club at Lakewood School was on Oct. 23.
The Pledge of Allegiance was led by Brooklyn Pugh and the 4-H pledge was led by Valeria Cervantes.
Talan Paschall gave the thought of the day and Drew Purdon had us play a game called Ape, Human and Feather which was quite fun and was similar to rock, paper, scissors except using your whole body.
Poster awards were given out and Anna Claire, Paschall and Purdon each received purple awards. Our vice president was absent so Rylee Jensen did an excellent job substituting for her.
Our next meeting is Dec. 4 and we will have a recycled crafts contest.
