NORTH JACKSON, Ohio — The Jackson-Milton Livestock 4-H Club held its last meeting for the year, Nov. 21.

The club took part in a service project where the members donated old flags so the stars will be cut out and given to troops with a card as a keepsake. The remains of the flags will then be disposed of properly. The year is coming to an end, and next year, the club will be electing new officers.

These officers will have a training session in February in order to fully understand the rules and responsibilities of their specific office. The club will be Christmas caroling Dec. 3, before the club’s Christmas party, which will be on the same day at 6 p.m. at the Jackson Township Building.

If you are interested in joining the Jackson-Milton Livestock Club, now would be a good time to sign up for the following year. The club is currently conducting a cheese basket sale. The order forms are due by the Christmas party, so make sure you contact a member soon if you are interested.
