The San Fran­cisco Val­ley 4-H Club has been busy so far this year. Along with our regular meet­ings each month, mem­bers have been in­volved in train­ings and com­mu­nity fundrais­ers and events.

Mae­gan and Levi Simp­son went to South­west Dis­trict Of­fi­cer Train­ing, or SWDOT, on Fe­bru­ary 7 and 8 in Las Cruces. They met up with some other peo­ple from Ca­tron County to learn lead­er­ship skills and tech­niques for work­ing within large groups. One of the ac­tiv­i­ties was cooking din­ner to­gether for the group. Af­ter din­ner, there were more ac­tiv­i­ties fol­lowed by an evening play­ing bunko. There were more train­ing ac­tiv­i­ties the next day, and they headed home around noon.

The March meet­ing of the San Fran­cisco Val­ley 4-H Club was held on March 10 at the Glenwood Clinic. It was a very im­por­tant meet­ing where the club de­cided the dates for our an­nual fundrais­ers. Af­ter the March meet­ing two mem­bers gave their pre­sen­ta­tions. Mae­gan Simp­son gave her pre­sen­ta­tion on can­ning and Alex Hem­mer gave her pre­sen­ta­tion on ce­ram­ics.

On March 20, James and Ken­dra Tay­lor, Alex Hem­mer, and John and Lori Robert­son cleaned up the gar­den at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter. They pulled weeds, re­moved un­wanted trees, and cleaned and pruned the plant­ing beds. Club mem­bers also helped Beth Menczer at the Dutch Oven Cook-off April 11 by act­ing as run­ners for the cooks, and also sold baked goods and drinks.

The April meet­ing was held April 14 at the Com­mu­nity Cen­ter. Af­ter work­ing out the de­tails for the up­com­ing Bin- go, Kayla Man­ning spoke about swine show-box essen­tials, Dallin Par­nell gave a pre­sen­ta­tion on his rab­bit project, Colton Par­nell told the club about dif­fer­ent breeds of goats, and Levi Simp­son gave a pre­sen­ta­tion on Veg­etable Gar­den­ing.

The an­nual Spring Bingo was April 18 at the Glenwood Com­mu­nity Cen­ter. The Ra­bies Clinic and bake sale was held April 25 at the Se­nior Cen­ter.

In other news, there will be a Ca­tron County 4-H Coun­cil meet­ing at the “Fes­ti­val of 4H”.
