Cheyenne Wells, Colo. - On February 12, 2024, the Cheyenne County 4-H Council held a meeting at 6:46 p.m.

There were five members present from Happy Go Lucky, four from Old Wells, and five from Sand creek. Before the meeting, team builder Trinity Engelbrecht led everyone in a team-bonding game.

Following the icebreaker, the members who were present broke into two committees, one discussing the window painting contest, while the other committee focused on the Celebrity Pig Show. Neither of the committees decided on a resolution.

After that we discussed community service ideas. It was brought up that Gracieana Smith, the council’s president, was putting on a Blood Drive for her Senior project. A couple of the members volunteered to step in and bake cookies for the event.

After discussing community service, Ava Oswald gave a report on a 4-H camp she attended called Dare To be You.

To conclude the meeting, Lacey Taylor provided tacos for all attendees to enjoy and to celebrate all members who completed a new project in 2023.
