At the second meeting of the Vanguards 4-H Club, 24 members responded to the roll call by telling their favorite candy bar. The Pledge to the American Flag was led by Kaden Barrows and the 4-H Club Pledge by Lola Wells.

Gavin Bergman gave a demonstration, telling about his entomology project. Among the things he discussed were how to prepare specimens for display, how to prepare an exhibit and where to look for insects. Jared Jobe told about his model project, showing his car from last year. He advised to be careful gluing the parts so no glue shows on the finished model. He painted his model and placed decals, saying the decals were sometimes difficult to apply.

The 4-H’ers sang “The Littlest Orange.” Officers were reminded of training on March 13 at the Roberts Building.

All livestock members are required YQCA certification. Check the Fayette County Extension Newsletter Winter Issue: January 2018, for dates for training along with much other information.

Record books and 4-H Handbooks were given to all members.

Since our club has many new members, the 4-H’ers voted for new t-shirts this year.

For the Health and Safety report, Levi Marszalek talked about health hazards.

Refreshments were served by the Marszalek family.

The next meeting will be March 20 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Bergman home. All were reminded to check their program books to see who will give demonstrations and serve refreshments.
