Let's Make Music!

Do you play an instrument? Do you love to play fun, easy music with some of your best 4-H pals? Well then Band Club is for you! If you have any experience with a concert band instrument (winds, brass, or percussion), and can bring an instrument to meetings, we would love to have you in the first Peel 4-H Band! As we will be playing basic sheet music, you should be comfortable reading basic notes and rhythms. Meetings will, for the most part,  take place on Sundays. If you are interested in making music with us please contact Mary Matson at memmerton@hotmail.com and let her what instrument you will be bringing.

BARN QUILT 2018

Looking for a way to express your creative side?  Then this is the project for you. Using the Barn Quilt technique,
members will paint the sides of apple display bins at Albion Orchards to look like a quilt or perhaps a design of
our own. Our task is to transform the plain, wooden bins into attractive photographic, display boxes.
Members will be involved in planning, sketching and painting.

This project is being sponsored by Scott Lunau, owner of Albion Orchards.
We will be holding all our meetings at Albion Orchards. Our goal is to have the boxes ready by September.
