Haskins Clover Crew
Haskins Clover Crew 4-H Club met Sunday at the Wenig farm. Premium money from last season was passed out to members.
The group also talked about the Walk Across Wood County fundraiser, which they are participating in this season. Currently, the goal for this fundraiser is to have each member of the group collect $20, which they will be donating to St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
The group also discussed a community service project for this year. They will be painting all of the sewers in Haskins and passing out pamphlets to the inhabitants of Haskins.
To finish off the meeting, one of the members of Haskins Clover Crew, Alex Wynn, did a demonstration on routines for working out. He showed the group the proper ways to do various exercises and weight lifting. He discussed the curl bar, the bench, how to do squats, and talked about the mule kick. Due to his experience, the members felt he did a great job of explaining and showing the group how to do these various exercises. He lifts every weekday for at least one hour. His demonstration was also appropriate because he will be completing a project called "You're the Athlete" this year for 4-H.
The club will also be meeting this Sunday at 5 p.m. at the Haskins Town Hall to work on the community service project of painting the sewers.
