RANGELY I Rangely 4-H had a council meeting June 6 in which 34 members and parents met at Highway 139 at 6 p.m. From 6-6:30 we cleaned up both sides of the highway for a mile. At 6:30 p.m., we went to Shirley Sinclair’s house. We had our meeting in her back yard and “pigged out” on hotdogs and hamburgers. Thank you Janet Kenney and Shirley Sinclair for cooking our food and Bill Kenney, Alan Ducey and Rich Garner for making sure we didn’t get run over while cleaning the road.
At the meeting, we talked about the feeder show, the senior trip, our last Eagle Crest visit on June 2 and more. Pre-fair feeder show grand champions were Klaire Denny with her pig, Justine Dembowski with her lamb and Tessa Slagle with her goat. Thanks to our sponsors Clarks Auto for the ice and Bill Hume with Nichols Store for the prizes. We had a great turn-out at the show.
The senior trip was another thing that we discussed. Some 4-H senior members from both ends of the county went to Las Vegas, Nev., the Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde and river rafting in Moab, Utah, during the Memorial Day holiday.
At our last Eagle Crest visit we played bingo with the residents.
