Kattle Kings

The Kattle Kings met on Dec. 23 at the Warner Community Center. The club paid for supper at Pizza Ranch. The pledge leaders were Nora Moen and T.J. Wiedebush.

The members sang Christmas carols, read Christmas stories and visited with residents at the Manor Care Nursing Home and gave them angel ornaments that the club members made. Residents were very fond of Macee, 4-H dog. Following that the club had a Christmas party at Pizza Ranch and a scavenger hunt at the Lakewood Mall.

The Kattle Kings Club decided to donate $50 worth of animal supplies to the Aberdeen Humane Society. The Huber family volunteered to do the shopping. Members also discussed the chickens they ordered. They will be arriving March 9. Members are also going to learn how to knit on Wednesdays after school so they can make sweaters for the World Vision program to be sent to Africa. Carter Dryer reported that Brenda Dryer got a new job as the 4-H Secretary in Aberdeen. She knows a lot about 4-H and will be glad to help if members have any questions. The Kattle Kings also purchased a dairy goat for underprivileged countries through the Samaritan’s Purse. Emily Wiedebush gave a report on the horse study sessions at the 4-H building on the 3rd Thursday of each month that her family has been attending. Kattle King members are encouraged to join the “Be Well South Dakota” 15 week program beginning in January.

The next meeting will take place on Jan. 11 at the Odde Ice Arena. The Wagner family will host.
