Spring Fever in Sublette County youth
April 22, 2011

The 4-H Cloverbuds held their monthly meeting April 13th at the Extension Office in Pinedale. This monthís lesson covered Responsibility in conjunction with the Character Counts! program, planting flowers for the LaBarge Afterschool Greenhouse and Motherís Day surprises. The meeting began with Claire Hayward leading the American Pledge and Keegan Gehlhausen leading the club with the 4-H Pledge. Members played two games, the first was a game of "Hot and Cold" which the youth enjoyed immensely! One youth would cover their eyes, while an object was hidden. The youth then had to listen to directions from members to find the hidden object. It quickly became a fun game and the youth ended up playing it at the end of the meeting as well. The members learned how to speak clear directions to allow someone to find the object. The second game was the game of "rumors." The game began with their leader reading them a sentence and the sentence being repeated throughout the 15 members to be repeated at the end. Members giggled as the end result of what was said and how it was completely different then how the sentence began. The youth learned at how quickly a story can change and how it is our responsibility to not repeat things.

The Cloverbuds didnít let the snow deter them, spring is in the air!!! Members then began working on their community service project. Planting perennial flowers for the LaBarge Afterschool Greenhouse project. Youth divided into two groups and planted seeds. They then gathered up to plant flowers for their mothers for Motherís Day. Members learned about how they will need to be responsible and take care of their plant to grow it for their mom. Their leader explained that 4-H projects are a measure of a members responsibility, so learning to take care of animals, and other projects are part of the 4-H program. So members were given this project to show them that it will be their responsibility to make sure their Motherís Day plant is watered and placed in sun to grow.

The next meeting for Cloverbuds will be May 11th after school where members will be downtown coloring business sidewalks with messages of 4-H and spring greetings, (weather permitting of course). An awards program and year end slide show will be the final session with the Cloverbuds on June 8th at the Wind River Pizzeria.
