The Clinton County Fur and Feather 4-H Club met Wednesday night at the Expo Center for their fourth meeting of the year. Daniel Hinkle led the club in the Pledge of Allegiance and Katie Hinkle let the club in the 4-H pledge.

Advisor Mike Cook gave 4-H committee updates — members need to send buyers letters for the sale, and the deadline to make changes to online enrollment is March 30. Kevin Bogan gave senior fair board updates.

President Ethan Dickey-Hall gave junior fair board updates — the Color Run is June 23 and a cornhole and euchre tournament is being planned.

Bella Cook gave Cloverbud updates — Cloverbud camp is June 27 and July 2 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Safety Reporter Rosie Hall explained the importance of wearing long sleeves when handling rabbits to protect your arms from getting scratched. Six members volunteered to demonstrate their rabbits for the club — Gracie and Emily Goodwin brought in two Silver Martins, Taylor Ham brought in her Netherland Dwarf, Kelli Greene brought in her Florida White, and Jace and Jayden Doyle brought in their Californians.

The next meeting will be on April 11 in the Expo Center where the club will practice Skillathon.
