Kids to Kids Thank You: Our club received a thank you note from Margaret Miller, the coordinator of Kids to Kids (which took place on December 9th). She wanted to appreciate the help that our club gave. Our club (along with many others) helped the kids to make crafts, receive gifts, and meet/take a picture with Santa.
Shutterfly – Tricia: Tricia talked about how it’s important for the members to put their project meeting dates on the Shutterfly calendar. Members need to know when meetings are and parents need to make sure that they are actually able to attend the meeting. If you aren’t signed up for Shutterfly, talk to Tricia!
We watched the February Video Bulletin, and then we played a game called Giants, Elves and Wizards. It was a rock, paper, scissors game, where everyone started out as either a giant, wizard or elves. The different characters continued to beat each other, and if you lost, you sat down. The last one standing was the winner.
Presentation Day – Tanish: He went to County Presentation Day gave a presentation about chemical reactions. He talked about why they happen. He was nervous and excited, and he got a gold and will be moving on the sectionals. It was super fun!
Interview Contest – Kruthi: She participated in the interview contest at county presentation day. She applied for the position of pottery maker. The interviewers asked her why she was qualified, her experience, and other questions. It was super stressful and not a piece of cake, but was able to make it through and recommends that you do it. She also got a Gold for the Interview Contest.
Goat Field Day – Prashansa: She went to Goat Field Day, which was on January 22nd. It was held at UC Davis. They showed how to take out the horns of a goat (you have to burn the horns) which is called disbudding. She saw goats and pet them. They also found out that the goat was pregnant by doing an ultrasound.
Sectional Field Day: All attendees at County that qualified to go to Sectionals can go, except primary entrée. It will take place on March 24 (San Luis Obispo) or April 7. You must register and can enter Interview Contest without competing first at county.
St. Patrick’s Day Parade: It is on March 17, and we have been invited to join Fair Unit. Do we still want to decorate a vehicle? We would need committee and chair. We got a vehicle (7-seater van) and sign ups were passed around. (Did we get a chair and advisor?) Who volunteered the van?
Fun Run: It is on March 18th, and the city will send more information about it soon. Those who signed up will get information about whatever position they signed up for. Not everyone will get the position that they signed up for.
Skit Morning – Sharon: Skit morning is on April 21st (instead of Skit Night). The Rising Stars project is in charge of it. There is a pancake breakfast from 9:00 to 10:30, and then the skits start. We can do a club skit, improv skit, short skit and others. It also counts as a presentation towards your record book. The theme for the club skit is “Around the World and Back Again”.
All Star Applications Available – Akanksha: They all star apps are out as of now they are on the county website and you can email Cheryl Frasier and Sharon has one. You lead county events, go to leaders council and know what is going on in the county. You need your gold star to apply
