Feathers and Fleece

Feathers and Fleece 4-H Club has started the year with club projects, community service projects and so much more. The new council was decided at the March meeting, some of whom include Aravis Nelson, community service coordinator; Vincent Dragolich, treasurer; Allie Wiseman, secretary; Isaac Thompson, vice president; and Aubrey Haefke, news reporter.

Holly Phillips has been appointed as the new project helper, species leader for fancy chickens and production. She will be helping people with their show birds throughout all of this year and possibly through next year all the way to the Great Geauga County Fair. Holly will be of aid in terms of animal care, showing techniques and many other helpful subjects.

The annual Feathers and Fleece carwash is June 25 at Tractor Supply and Co. in Chardon.

At the last meeting, club members came up with designs for the new club logo, which the club voted on and will soon be handed out. The winner of the contest was Isaac Thompson.

New events such as Paint a Plow, sewing mini animals and park cleanings are going to be some of the projects the club will participate in over the summer.

On May 7, there will be a poultry show at the Ashtabula Fairgrounds. If anyone has any questions from caring for to purchasing birds, please attend this poultry show that will run this weekend.

This year will be the bicentennial of the Great Geauga County Fair, which will take place the last week of August. Fair will be going on for an entire week, and Feathers and Fleece will be showing projects that include rabbits, turkeys, chickens and so much more. (Submitted by Aubrey Haefke, club reporter)
