4-H News Reports


Field Crop Club Report

By: Josh Youells

 We have had two meetings so far.  At the first meeting, hosted at Ross’ house, we were introduced to the club leaders, met the other participants, and voted for our positions. The positions were President, Vice-President, Secretary and Press Reporter.  We also enjoyed snack before dismissing for the night. Afterwards, we received our seeds. Some people selected corn, and some people selected soybean seeds prior to the meeting. Horizon Seeds were very generous with their donations.

 The second meeting was at Bob Mark New Holland dealership.  Andy took us for a tour of the dealership showing us various pieces of equipment and would answer any questions.  The first piece was a vertical tillage unit that can “tear up” the ground and make it ready for planting. Its design was good for rocky soil in our area.  We briefly talked about what plants need. Plants need 3 things; heat, moisture, and nutrients. If you’re in muddy conditions the scraper on the unit will build up and need to be cleaned.

 The next piece was another plowing unit.  It plows the ground for you to save time so that you can do more acres in a day.  We looked at older equipment too. We saw a seeder and a cultivator that was in the parking lot.  Next, we walked to the other end of the dealership to look at a discbine. It cuts the hay with spinning blades.  It was a big unit.

 The last piece of equipment we saw was the round baler.  It was open to see the inside of the unit. Andy shared the difference between the wrap and the twine used for finishing the bale.  Wrap is faster in tying the bale.

 At the end, we went back into the dealership and enjoyed a snack and were given shirts to all the 4-H members.  It was very generous of Andy.



On January 12/19 The Powell's Corner Sewing Club met for our first meeting at the home of Edna White.  The members and myself were informed about all of the different things we might need throughout taking this club.  We went through the Sewing Tools list and our leaders showed us examples of the tools on the list.  Some of the members already had some of the items in their sewing boxes.  We got out our machines and started to practice sewing on the sewing sheets.  We had to sew straight lines, squares, circles, spirals and the 4-H emblem outline.   

At our second meeting held on January 19/19 at Edna's house we learned how to make Magic Pillow Cases with a French Seam.  They were truly magic!

Kick It Capes were on the agenda for our third meeting on February 2/19.  The Kick It Capes are going to be donated to children fighting cancer or dealing with a terminal illness.

Our fourth and final meeting was held on February 9/19 at Edna's.  We made Hot Pads for Pets for the Brooklin Vet Clinic.  Each member sewed squares and then filled them with oats.  The clinic will be able to heat them up and put them with the animals at the clinic.

The achievement day for the Powell's Corner Sewing Club will be held at 4-H Fair.  Each member will have to display the items that we made along with our completed manual and Sewing box.
