On June 25, the Champaign County Feeders 4-H Club held a meeting at the church in North Lewisburg. Committee reports were given, and unfinished business such as the plans for decorating our clubs booth at the fair and non-livestock judging schedules were discussed. Members of our club then gave presentations on their goat or non-livestock projects. The meeting was concluded by a game and refreshments. Our next meeting will be on July 16th, 2017.

The 2017-2018 Urbana FFA officer retreat was held on May 30 and 31. Students arrived at the Urbana High School Agriculture Department on May 30 at noon to set goals for the upcoming school year. The officers set personal, team and chapter goals to make the upcoming year as great as possible. The team also shared places they believed need improvement as well as ideas to improve said areas. Next, the advisors and officers worked together to set dates for events this upcoming school year. Students then went to work on their officer books and other assigned duties. After being hard at work for several hours, the students and advisors left for Poor Farmer’s Campground. After arriving at the campgrounds, camp was setup and dinner of hamburgers and chips was made. After dinner the officers and advisors played several team bonding games and made s’mores over a fire. The next morning a breakfast, which consisted of pancakes, sausage, and bacon, was cooked. After all officers and advisors had eaten camp was cleaned up. The group then went to Goshen Lanes in Mechanicsburg to bond over a few games of bowling. Finally the group ended their retreat back at Urbana High School on May 31 at 1pm.
