The Black Hawk Nighthawks 4-H club held their regular monthly meeting on March 17, and the roll call was, "Share something you did during spring break."
As everyone arrived, each person put in a guess on how many jelly beans were in a jar that Malissa had prepared. Sarah Schildroth's guess was the closest, so she won the jar of jelly beans. Malissa reminded members that there will be FSQA (Food Safety Quality Assurance) classes offered at the Hawkeye Community Center on April 8th from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., and April 27th from 9:30 11:30 a.m. This class is required to show most animals at the fair. Several of our members worked at the Omelet Breakfast earlier in the day; it seemed to be a good turnout.
Sarah Schildroth gave a presentation about her cat named Fred and how he was adopted. She even brought along Fred for everyone to meet. Paul Brockett did a presentation about the U.S. penny and its history, as well as an experiment he did to dissolve the zinc in a penny. We also had a special guest speaker. Janet Schildroth gave us advice about making good first impressions, and told us about setting the place at the table, as well as other common sense advice.
