Our club is the Lucky Clover 4-H in Shawnee..  We meet on the second Tuesday of every month at Grace Point Church.
We are an active club with 29 members and are involved in community service and various 4-H activities.
Our community service activities this year have included Christmas caroling at a nursing home, donating food for the food pantry at Gracepoint Church, helping with Shawnee Community Service’s Christmas Party, and filling shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child to be sent to children around the world.
Our club’s Junior Leaders’ community service project was at Shawnee Community Services shelving over 6,000 loaves of bread. On October 8, our club will participate in 48 Hours of 4-H by collecting donations for Shawnee Community Services.
Our club is very involved in 4-H activities like cake decorating, foods, arts and crafts, entomology, photography, clothing construction, fashion revue, woodworking, poultry, technology, etc.  Every year several club members enter talks, demonstrations, solos, etc. in the County Club Day, and our club also writes and produces a skit.
This year, we received top purple on our skit and went to regionals where we also received a purple ribbon. We were proud of ourselves.
Every year our club also makes a club banner for the county fair. We look forward to doing well this year.
Our club participates in a fundraising activity every year to help pay for club activities, and this year we had a bake sale at the Shawnee Craft Fair.  Everyone loved the cookies, bread, and other treats we made, and it was a great success. Our members volunteer during the fair at the Johnson County 4-H Food Booth.
Our club has worked very hard this year to get new members, to receive good ribbons, and to raise money for the club, and we all know that we have worked hard to do so well.
