Lucky Charms

On Jan. 12, the Lucky Charms 4-H Club convened for officer elections. Dana Kleman was elected president; Meredith Schultz, vice president/treasurer; Keira Miller secretary/news reporter; Analisa Bihary, health and safety officer; and Duncan Schultz and Avalyn Bihary, recreation officers.
4-H Advisors Amy Hoops and Nada Miller led the club in activities to learn about healthy snacks. Members learned about the five food groups, and categorized their favorite snacks as a fruit, vegetable, grain, protein, dairy, or junk food. For recreation, members played "Button, Button, Who Has the Button," and "Snack Tag," a variation of Freeze Tag, in which members had to shout a healthy snack to avoid being frozen.
January is National Thank-you Month; to celebrate, members signed thank-you cards the Wood County Commissioners, Senator Gardner, Representative Brown, and Saint Mark's Lutheran Church, where they meet. The Lucky Charms realizes that 4-H would not be possible without their support. They would also like to extend their thanks to all 4-H advisors.
The Lucky Charms will have officer installations at their next meeting, which will be Sunday at the church.

NORTH BALTIMORE - While one of the major topics of the annual meeting of the Wood County Farmers Union was Senate Bill 150 (see related story, beginning on page 1), there were various other things addressed at the meeting held at the Iron Skillet Restaurant in North Baltimore.
At the meeting Julie Baumgarner, the Wood County recorder, was a featured speaker. She updated those in attendance with some of the latest news from the Wood County offices, not just her office. She noted how she has seen the economy moving ahead slowly with some modest improvement in housing sales.
"The economy is getting better as we are seeing some building," Baumgarner said noting one new housing development going up. That is a trend which she has not seen for many years.
She also shared services provided to veterans by her office in regard to filing and accessing discharge papers.
One of the Farmers Union members, Karen Wood, gave a well-received presentation on the history of the Farmers Union, which included information on the national, state and local offices.
