Gruene Kountry February meeting
Submitted by Paxtyn Cochran
Gruene Kountry 4-H held their February meeting on February 16 at the Comal County Extension Office. We had 32 members present and 12 adults. During the business meeting, we discussed eligibility forms, volunteering at the CCJLS, and the upcoming fundraiser.
For our program, we learned about leadership and leadership styles.
Keene Kreusler told us about the different 4-H offices we can run for next year. He described each office and the importance of them for our club. We did leadership games to find out what kind of leadership style we each possess and how we are all different but equally important! We spelled our names and for each letter someone wrote one thing about us. We then each stood and said our name and one word about us. For our next activity, we had pictures of different types of shoes that represented different leadership styles on the wall and we each had to pick which one that we thought represented us the most. Then Keene told us the meaning of the shoes and we could move around to find our perfect fit. We then passed out “Intent to Run” forms for anyone wishing to run for a club office. The election will be in April.
For our community service project, we wrote thank you letters to deployed soldiers which will be sent along with our packaged food items we bought.
Our next meeting will be on March 22 at the Comal County Extension office.
