Eagle Creek 4-H news
Members of the Eagle Creek 4-H Club have been busy the past few months preparing for area shows and joining in various community-service activities.
During November and December, the club donated nonperishable food items to local food banks, and also donated frozen turkeys to help with Thanksgiving dinners for those in need. Additionally, they are participating in Tabs for Troops, and collecting funds for Heifer International, a group which has donated regionally appropriate livestock and tree seedlings to more than 125 countries around the world in order to fight global hunger and deforestation.
Several members excelled in the District X Food Challenge and Quiz Bowl in Kerrville in January, and also placed in the Wilson County Junior Livestock Show Jan. 23-26. They will be preparing projects for other major shows around the state.
Club officers include President Colby Shodrock, First Vice President Madison Pollok, Second Vice President Sarah Bruett, Third Vice President LeAnn Yelton, Secretary Liesel Raabe, Treasurer Trevor Moy, Reporter Mia Montgomery, Historian Sharon Halliburton, Administrative Secretary Brenna Henke, Parliamentarian Kyle Moy, Council Delegate Shae Shodrock, and Community Service Coordinator Megan Seesengood.
New this year are junior officers: Junior President Garret Younts, Junior Vice President Ashley Seesengood, and Junior Secretary Capri Montgomery.
