The Lucky Charms 4-H club met Feb. 10, at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Bowling Green.
The club held officer installation with all officers pledging to accept the responsibility of the office. Newly installed president Kiera Miller called the meeting to order.
Health and safety officer Dana Kleman spoke on interesting facts about household fires, like one starts every 30 minutes in the state of Ohio. Kiera Miller and Meridith Schultz reported on the PJ sewing clinic that they attended. Abby Basteson told the group all the fun things she did at "Midnight Madness." Recreation leader Tim Kleman taught the members how to ski using pieces of wood instead of skis. Members had to work together to move the skis to the other side of the room.
Abby Bateson gave a demonstration on creating an interesting scrapbook page. Members decorated Valentine's cookies; dipped strawberries and marshmallows in chocolate as a Valentine's treat for their families.
A game of Valentine's trivia was played. Members answered questions such as what fruit is known as the "Love Apple?" Hint, it is a fruit popular in Wood County, and Who kissed the girls and made them cry? At the end of the meeting the older members mentored the new members with their projects.
The next meeting is 2:30 p.m. Sunday at the church with students from Owens Community College Dental hygiene program will be conducting a program.
