MEEKER I The first White River Swine Club meeting was held Jan. 28 and was called to order by Kenzie Turner at 7:01 p.m.
There were 22 kids in attendance, and the first order of business was to elect club officers: president Casey Turner, Vice president Sheridan Harvey, secretary James Amick and treasurer Kenzie Turner.
The pledge members are all the first year members and the historians are Kolten Turner and Kalbe Nelson.
Next, club requirements were discussed: members must attend 50 percent of the meetings; members must do a demonstration; they must raise a swine for sale at the county fair; and all members are required to say the pledge.
The swine weigh-in is on May 7 from 4 to 7 p.m.
The fair runs July 30 to Aug. 2 with the pig show July 31 and the sale on Aug. 2.
The group then talked about the bottom weight of the swine being raised to 230.
After that, the group broke into little groups and came up with some ideas for us to do over the 4-H year.
The next meeting is Feb. 25 at 6 p.m.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:43 p.m.
