On Sunday, June 10, 2012 some 14 Newell Booster and Achiever Club members were led by President, Zack Sievers, to review Summer Club activities and hear presentations from 5 club members. The clubs will work together to paint the Alta Fairgrounds Small Animal Barn on July 8th and make ready for the fair events that will follow.
In the Leader’s report by Lisa Christensen and Tricia Morenz members were encouraged to read their 4-H Newsletter and meet June 15th Entry Form deadlines and try new exhibit areas such as Pride of Iowa, Communications, Pie Baking and Share The Fun. Several members worked to complete poster exhibits at the workshop following the meeting led by Lisa Christensen all held at Newell’s Nain Lutheran Church.

Making tasty Apple Dip by Elizabeth Rhiner highlighted an Iowa food product and required a hand-held mixer for the food demonstration.
Three presentations gave members family consumer science ideas ranging from using recyclable materials for home decorations by Carla Peterson; to food preparation on How to Make Apple Dip by Elizabeth Rhiner; and How to Make Popcorn balls by Brenna Emerick and Megan Carlson. In a fourth presentation, Aden Mahler explained and demonstrated livestock feed rations using protein, corn and oats for cattle.
The sticky job of making Popcorn balls by Brenna Emerick and Megan Carlson created a unique stovetop treat.

The club’s next meeting will be Sunday, July 8, 2012 from 4-5PM to paint the small animal barn at the Buena Vista County Fairgrounds in Alta followed by County Fair Clean-up.
