Submitted by Emily Shumaker, reporter

   The seventh meeting of the Red Butte Ramblers 4-H Club was called to order by president Nicole Allerdings at the Plevna Senior Center April 15 at 3 p.m.


The American pledge was led by Wyat Rudicel and the 4-H pledge was led by Daylee Hanson. Roll call was answered with somewhere in America you would like to visit. There were 20 members present. Secretary Emily Shumaker read the minutes of the last meeting and they were approved as read. Caleb Ploeger read the treasurer’s report.

   For old business, Carol Sparks discussed with the club about working on road signs and putting them up. President Nicole Allerdings asked if any of the members attended the Kids and Horses meeting Mar. 30. None of the members attended. Nicole also asked if any of the members attended the livestock committee meeting Apr. 8 – none attended. President Allerdings also reminded everyone that all members need to do a demonstration or an illustrative talk to finish their 4-H year.

   For new business, they discussed ideas for a club tour. President Nicole Allerdings told the club that Apr. 15 there was a Council meeting at 7 p.m. Members were also reminded that on Apr. 19 spring livestock judging will be at Baker. Apr. 24 registrations for OREO trip are due, which this year is in Fort Peck, June 16-18. Nicole Allerdings also asked if anyone would be attending the horse judging May 5. May 8 registrations for 4-H camp in Ekalaka June 9-11 are due to the Extension Office. The club discussed Communications Day in June and is hosted by the ambassadors. June 2-3, Temple Grandin is in our area giving a presentation, which qualifies as Market Assurance requirement. This will also be very informative in general.

   The next meeting will be May 21 at 3 p.m. Demonstrations will be first. When the Baker students arrive, the club will clean the highway, followed by the meeting and a family potluck. Each family can bring a salad or dessert.
