Giggles ‘n Stitches

The Giggles ‘n Stitches 4-H Club started its 2021 year. The club is run by lead advisor Julia Wood, as well as other advisors, Lisa Hernandez and Miranda Skitzki. The club had its first in-person meeting of the year on April 24 since being online throughout the past year.

An important event held by the club at their May 26 meeting was the election of the new 2021 officers. Returning from last year is president Emily Tessean, vice president Samantha Sunderhaft, treasurer Rebecca Zallar and secretary Mary Jo Hernandez. The club also elected Mary Kit Murray as junior treasurer, Dorothy Hernandez as junior secretary, Emma Parker as news reporter, Helena Haar and Margaret Zallar as health and safety officers, Rebecca Turpin as hospitality coordinator and Calla Haar and Sarah Turpin as historians.

The club also held its yearly field trip to JoAnn Fabrics on May 8 at the Hudson location. Each member went and picked up all the needed supplies, including fabrics, patterns, thread and whatever else was needed to complete the projects. The advisors and the officers were also there to help any member needing assistance.

The club was able to hold its first in-person sewing meeting on May 26 at Adam Hall. Auburn Township graciously allows the club to use the hall as its sewing and meeting space.
