The Owl’s Nest 4-H Club met Jan. 26 at the Jackson County Public Library in Seymour.

After roll call, the pledge to the American flag and the pledge to the 4-H flag were recited, a business meeting was conducted and details for entering projects for the fair were discussed.

Club members turned in 110 flower basket orders, and the club’s two service projects for 2016 were discussed.

The club is currently collecting towels, blankets, Dawn dish soap, dog toys, cat toys and food for the Humane Society of Jackson County.

In May, club members will be working with residents at Hoosier Christian Village in Brownstown. 

The club also plans to tour a local bakery and visit Southern Indiana Center for the Arts.

Bethany Carmichael gave a demonstration about simple crocheting stitches.
