The monthly meeting of the Great Plains 4-H Club was held at Deanna Rose Farmstead in Overland Park, for the June meeting. The farmstead is celebrating its 35th year in operation this year, and club members enjoyed touring the farm.
Club members were allowed to look around at the animals and displays before their meeting. A baby calf was recently born at the farm, so everyone one in the 4-H club was able to see the calf with its mother.  Club members enjoyed the dairy barn, chicken coop, feeding the goats, rabbits, fishing and getting chased by the geese. The Great Plains Club provided every club member with money to feed a goat or one of the other animals at the farm.
After the club, members walked through the farmstead. They went to the stables to have lunch and their business meeting.
The meeting was called to order by President, Zach Nason; attended by Vice President, Samantha Rucker; Secretary, Anna Jones; and Treasurer Chris Eflin.  The meeting was attended by 21 club members. The Great Plains club discussed upcoming events such as the Johnson County Fair, a health fair in the fall, and the fair parade committee.
After the meeting, the families were allowed to stay longer to enjoy the farm.
