MOUNT MORRIS – Members of the Circle M 4-H Club started the year with a September meeting.

New officers for the year are Trevor Nelson, president; Karli Miller, vice president; James Taylor, treasurer; Valeria Viteri-Pflucker, secretary; and Evan Kosick, club reporter. New members are Mariah Drake, Edwin Estrada, and Zachary Garrett.

The first activity for the year was painting outside windows at Sterling Federal Bank in Mount Morris.

The painting was in honor of National 4-H Week, Oct. 6 to 12. Members also discussed having a float in Autumn on Parade in Oregon. The theme was “Haunted Harvest.”

At the club’s November meeting, members made Thanksgiving Day placemats and started planning their holiday community service project.

The club meets at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month at Mount Morris Church of the Brethren, 409 W. Brayton Road. For more information, call club leaders Deb Daleiden at 847-239-2330 or Angela Reigle at 815-994-0128, or the Ogle County Extension office at 815-732-2191.
