20/20 Vision Project is underway
Eighteen 4-H Cloverbuds had a fantastic time at the Western Cloverbud 4-H Camp that was held at the Codington County Extension Complex on July 14.
They made crafts, panned for gold, square danced, barrel raced, played ping pong ball shoot out and sack race. We all had a yee-haw time.
Thank you to our 4-H youth volunteers Anna and Lucy Kahnke, Nathan Randall, Adrianna Boettcher, Hannah Loehrer, Hannah Reiner and Lucy Walker. Happy Trails!
Statewide community service project
The South Dakota 4-H statewide community service project is the 20/20 Vision Project. It empowers individuals across South Dakota to donate gently used eyeglasses to ultimately be gifted to those experiencing visual impairments.
Our statewide goal is 2,020 pairs of donated glasses. Let your club leader or our office know how many pairs of glasses you drop off so we can see how many Codington County 4-H donates.
We are accepting glasses until Aug. 5. Drop off glasses at the Codington County Extension Office (Entrance B), Meier Visual Clinic, Pearle Vision or Watertown Family Eyecare.
Country Ramblers 4-H Club
Country Ramblers 4-H Club met July 17 at New Helgen Church in Florence. In attendance were Gracie, Kale, Jocelyn, Jaxon, Brylie, Jayda, Jacey and Lane.
Jacey called the meeting to order. Gracie and Jocelyn led the Pledge of Allegiance, and Jaxon and Jayda led the 4-H pledge. Demonstrations were done by Jayda in conservation about trees, one in leadership about joining 4-H and one in citizenship with flag presentation. Brylie did one in fashion revue, one on moose under wildlife and one on clothing about selected outfits. Jocelyn did a demonstration on leadership on camp in the Black Hills and one on luster lace key chains under visual arts.
Coding County Achievement Days were talked about. Grabows, Aysia and Addie served.

Northside Hustlers 4-H Club
Northside Hustlers 4-H Club met on July 14 at the Codington County Extension Complex with 13 members present. Aiden led the Pledge of Allegiance and Jonathan led the 4-H pledge. Roll call question was, ‘What are your 4-H exhibits for Achievement Days?’ Hannah and Adrianna volunteered at Cloverbud Camp.
The club will be ordering club shirts and planned for the achievement day booth. Hannah and Joe adjourned the meeting. Hannah, Adrianna and Hattie gave a team demonstration on ducks in poultry. The club made a treat — ice cream in a bag.
