The West Unity Three Arts Club held their first meeting of the year on September 15 at the home of Bobbie Clark. Thirteen members answered the roll call “Your favorite activity at the fair”. Responses ranged from the band show, fair food, to seeing friends.
The speaker for the night was Laura Rohlf who talked about the history of 4-H. It is over 100 years old, and started out with only a few projects available such as cooking, sewing, and animals. Now there are over 200 projects to choose from. 4-H is just one component of the county fair. They work together. 4-H helps to build strong character, leadership, and responsibility.
Club President, Emily Schlosser, called the meeting to order. Thank yous were read from Shirley Taylor for the flowers and food during her surgery; Candy Tressler for the memorial for her mother; Jesse Westfall, a 2014 graduate, who received the Club’s Scholarship of $500, the West Unity Library for our donation to their summer reading program; and from Hilltop High School for our donation to the Academic Banquet held last spring.
Members brought items to be taken to the food pantry at the West Unity United Methodist Church. It was voted on to give $100 towards the new uniforms for the Hilltop Marching Band. The Avon fundraiser will be held in October. It was decided to have a Pampered Chef Party in the spring as another fundraiser.
The meeting was then adjourned. The October meeting will be held at the home of Joan Rohlf.
