Kaylee Young , Reinbeck Courier

On Sunday, November 12th, the Blackhawk Nighthawks 4-H Club held their regular monthly meeting in the Gladbrook-Reinbeck Elementary Library. Kinzee Hemann led the Pledge of Allegiance. Our roll call was "Say your favorite Thanksgiving food or tradition." Taylor Frischmeyer gave the secretary's report and Emma Fleshner gave the treasurer's report.

Fair projects and pictures that were on display at the library in October were returned. It was reported that our adopted garden in the park has been cleared for the winter. Members were reminded to get their enrollment fee to the extension office if they haven't already done that. The money and unsold booklets from the Younker's Community Days were collected. Several members helped set up our Christmas tree at Lincoln Savings Bank on Thursday, November 9th. It will be on display through the end of December for everyone to see.

In new business, we discussed our upcoming December activity. We will not have a regular Sunday meeting, but instead we will be going to Westview Senior Apartments to serve a snack and have an activity. Emma Fleshner, Karly Wilhau & Gwen Sommerfelt will work with Glenda to decide on the activity & snack. This will be in the afternoon on Monday, December 4th (there is no school due to in-service that day). Mardel shared information on the Citizen Washington Focus (CWF) 4-H trip. This is open to high school 4-H'ers from across the state and happens in June. Registration deadline is in January and there is help available to assist with the cost of the trip. Next, we discussed getting each member a 4-H t-shirt and whether we would like to do club or county 4-H t-shirts. We will talk about this more next meeting. We had no November birthdays. For our "Fair Project Area" discussion, more experienced members shared tips and information about photography. Mailea McLean led the 4-H Pledge to close the business meeting.
