The Geauga Dairymen 4-H Club held a meeting on Oct. 27 at the Niehus home.

Members discussed the Great Geauga County Fair. Everyone had a good experience and much fun.

The club dairy basket sold for $2,100. It was purchased by Ed Babcock, owner of Junction Auto. Members really appreciate his support.

The club contributed $100 of the proceeds to the 4-H scholarship fund.

Then, the group covered fair expenses. Club advisor Emma advised that all the hay and straw the club used during the fair was donated by Tom Robison. Thanks go to Tom for his generous contribution to the Geauga Dairymen 4-H Club.

A portion of the proceeds from the dairy basket will be invested in a set of clippers that can be shared and one show halter for each member.

Hauling cattle home from the fair was discussed. The members agreed to hire someone with a larger trailer to help haul cattle home from the fair next year so the cattle and families can get home earlier.

The club is planning a fall outing, possibly to Scores for bowling and laser tag.

Advisor Emma announced the club earned the Honor Club designation. This honor will be presented at the 4-H awards luncheon on Nov. 9. Several club members will be attending.

The advisors presented each club member with a certificate and candy bar that best describes his or her personality and contributions throughout the year.
