The 4-H Cloverbuds met for their first meeting of the year last night at the Extension Office in Pinedale. 4-H Cloverbuds are youth between the ages of 5 and not older than 8. 15 youth have joined the Cloverbud program this year.
The Cloverbuds were greeted by Jr. Leader Amber Robinson and her 4-H Project Penny, a 9-year-old Britney Spaniel. Members learned about some of the different project 4-H offers and the amount of work members put into their project before fair.
Members also brought non-perishable food to donate to the food basket, learned about the colors of the 4-H flag and Wyoming flag, built edible turkey ornaments, learned about Citizenship in 4-H’s Character Counts section, and learned about the concept of "Pay It Forward" for the community.
Members were given a 4-H bear, a brown bag to design, and poem to give to a random member of the community as a form of "Paying It Forward". So, if you happen to be greeted by a small generous member of the 4-H community with a brown bag and special something inside, remember to return the favor to another member of the community and "pay it forward".
The Cloverbuds will meet again December 3rd where they will work on their design for a Christmas parade float.
Cloverbud members include:
Junior Junior Leaders are: Palmer Klaren and Gus Lozier.
