On our wonderful new year, on January 2, 2006, the Arnoldsburg Eagles 4-H Club meeting was called to order by Amy Ashley. We started out with Drew Metheney starting our pledge of Allegiance and our 4-H Pledge. We then went to our songs led by Sarah Postalwait. We always start out with the song "West Virginia Boys an Girls", so that was our opening song. Then we sang "Desperado." Drew Metheney read us a poem called "Making Life Worth While." Roll was called by Jordan Mace. She called it by our favorite thing for Christmas. Our old business was a visit to Minnie Hamilton Health Care Center. Our new business is a 4-H Ski Trip and a poster contest. For recreation, by Hannah Wilson, we played bring me. It was fun having our first meeting on a new year.
On January 12, 2006, the Grantsville Guppies meeting was called to order by Danielle Kendall. Roll was called to order by answering pickles.

Posters are due at the Extension Office February 20, 2006. We ended the meeting with refreshments from Kenadee Taylor served to Rebbicca Newlon, Valarie Barr, Stephanie Roberts, Sandy McCumbers, Darla Taylor, and Clara Husk.

Pleasant Hill Clover-buds
Pleasant Hill Clover-buds met on January 10th at 3:30. There were 25 members present. We started the meeting out by calling roll. Some of the kids know the 4-H pledge. So far I have had two project books turned in. Don't forget there due in May. At the meeting we made bookmarks. The kids were divided up into groups and they worked together on them. After they got their bookmarks done there were prizes for them. For snack we had pop and chips. The kids really enjoyed their snack. ONLY ONE MESS! The next month's meeting will be February 14 at 3:30. When it warms up we are going to go roller skating at Spencer. I would like to thank Clara Husk for helping me and Jan Whited for letting me use her room.
