Prairie Moon has had an action packed and exciting year. With approximately 50 members, Prairie Moon has someone in every project. Many members achieved Grand and Reserve Champion at several spring shows in preparation for the fair. This club has had everything from past Rodeo Queens, Mr. & Mrs. 4-H, to Key Award winners. Prairie Moon has a great mix of older and younger members.
This year thie club had five seniors; Logan Allen, Nikki Gravatt, McKenna Holtgraver, Megan Milroy and Christina Quinn. The overall message for new 4-H members from this inspiring group is try as many projects as you can, and have fun!
In October, Prairie Moon participated in The Enchanted Forest, which was a two night community service and fundraising event. Members prepared a skit and presented it to all who attended. Members also held a concession stand.
Community service is very important to Prairie Moon. This year they have served the community in a number of ways including visiting a nursing home, ringing bells for the Salvation Army, and helping the Morning Grange at their Grange Pub Stand at Old Settler’s Day. The Morning Grange allows Prairie Moon to meet in their building.
Prairie Moon’s project tour and next meeting is planned to be during the fair and will include members sharing about their animals and hard work from this year. Afterwards they plan to enjoy a cookout following the meeting.
Prairie Moon meets the second Monday of each month at the Morning Grange Hall. For more information about this club, please contact our community leader, Justin Fiedler at [email protected]
