The monthly meeting of the Prairie Star 4-H club was held Dec. 13 at the Johnson County Fairgrounds.
The meeting was called to order by Vice President Michelle Deters. Pledges were led by Sean Singer and Sierra Muellner. Roll call was answered to the question, “What is your favorite type of cookie?” There were 23 members present.  The club had one guest, Darian Houston.
Hunter Burk gave the treasurer’s report, and the club has a total of $512.28. Lauren Molenda read the minutes from the November monthly meeting. The minutes were approved as read.
Marlene Muellner gave the community leader report and reminded the club about 4-H days, the County Food Fare, the Space Tech Workshop and other announcements in Clover Clips.  She acknowledged those who attended the Junior Leader meeting and Speech 101.  Tucker Davis gave a project talk about both meetings.  Bert Molenda asked everyone to turn in their money to Hunter for the Price Chopper Coupon Books they sold.  Leisa Burk was recognized for being our club leader, and she was rewarded with a pot of poinsettias. She passed around the Family Handbooks for updates, and presented our record books and achievement awards.
A motion was made by Anthony Deters to adjourn the meeting and Cole Davis seconded the motion. The motion was approved. The next meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Jan. 9 at the Johnson County Fairgrounds.
Following the meeting, the club had a Christmas party to celebrate the season.
