Dakota Sharpshooters

The Dakota Sharpshooters met on Oct. 11 at the Northern Electric Building. The meeting was led by Vice President Kaitlyn Crawford. Rayven Dutenhoffer led the American Pledge, and Colin Sprinkel led the 4-H Pledge.

This meeting was the first meeting for the 2016-2017 4-H year. The member dues will be $3.00 for a regular member and $4.00 for a member in the horse project. You can now enroll on 4-H online. Our two community service ideas this year were making bean soup packets and volunteering at Primrose. Some members from the club will be visiting Primrose on October 15 at 10 a.m. The new club project will be on First Aid and Health.

The club elected new officers for this new 4-H year. The president is Megan Malsam; vice president is Kaitlyn Crawford; secretary is Brianna Goldade; treasurer is Colin Sprinkel; corresponding secretary is Jessemy Sharp; reporter is Grace Malsam; the callers are Maddy Crawford and Emily Malsam.

The new club goals are 1) Get to the 4-H meetings on time, 2) Attend at least six 4-H meetings, 3) Do one community project, 4) Show three or more projects at the fair, and 5) Try one new project area.

The next meeting will be after the Recognition Event at Shriver’s. The Recognition Event will be at 2:00 at Shriver’s. The hosts will be Daniel and Travis Sharp.
