The Clinton County Fur and Feather 4-H Club met Sunday, Jan. 15 for a pizza and bowling party along with receiving their 4-H achievement certificates from the 2022 year.

A meeting was held recently as well for the Clinton County Fur and Feather Youth ARBA club. It is a youth charter club of the American Rabbit Breeders’ Association (ARBA) and is not connected with the 4-H program. Officers for the Youth ARBA club were elected at a recent meeting as well. The Youth ARBA club promotes the rabbit industry and serves to fund raise for the 4-H rabbit club and the 4-H rabbit division at the fair.

The annual fundraiser is an open and youth ARBA sanctioned rabbit show held at the Clinton County Fairgrounds. Members, advisors and parents organize and run the show and proceeds go to the 4-H Rabbit club and help support the rabbit shows at the fair.

Officers elected for the youth ARBA club are: Emily Goodwin, president; Austin Burden, vice president; Gracie Goodwin, secretary/treasurer; and directors: Jace Doyle, Ansley Doyle and Brody Hoff.

The next meeting of the Fur and Feather 4-H club will be Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. at the Expo Building on the fairgrounds. Interested new members are invited to attend the next meeting or contact advisors: Kevin and Vicki Bogan, 937-584-4332, for more information.
