BURTON, Ohio — The Geauga Dairymen 4-H club met Jan. 30 for its first 4-H meeting of the year. Members reviewed old business and elected a president; the other positions were assigned. Members also decided that the group was going to be run more by youth, rather than the adults, so 30 minutes before the meeting, the treasurer, secretary, vice president and president will meet to plan the meeting.
Membership enrollment papers are due April 15, and rules for the Hoard’s Dairymen judging contest. For 4-H week, members decided where to do a window, and then also discussed coming events. For more information about Geauga Dairymen 4-H Club, contact Emma Niehus at 440-221-3812.
