4-H group is preparing to raise animals for fair, which are currently being born.

At 4 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 27, Culver Livestock Club held its second meeting of the year at Culver City Hall. Anthony Hood led us in the 4-H pledge, and Taft Rice led us in the flag salute. We elected officers.

The president we elected is Isabelle Richards, and the vice president is Anthony Hood. The secretary/treasurer is Savanna Jasa, the reporter is me, Thayne Dickson, and last but not least, the sergeant-at-arms is Gracie Mendoza. We have 25 members in our club but only 19 members were present.

We talked about doing a car wash to raise money for our club and what color our Culver livestock shirts should be. We voted they will be red with white letters, so look out for us at the fair. We also talked about doing community service to clean up trash around Culver after our April meeting. It starts at Culver City Hall and ends at the park. Then we head back to where we started.

At the end of our meeting, we got in groups of three with two swine kids and one sheep kid to do a fair animal crossword puzzle. Our first meeting was held on Jan. 26. Our leaders, Scott and Angi Leeper, had us write the goals we want to accomplish this year. They told us that pigs should be born already, and sheep will be born soon. They asked if we had talked to our breeders yet.

At our first meeting, we played Jeopardy about pigs and sheep, and we got to meet the people who were new. Our next meeting will be at 4 p.m. March 29 at Culver City Hall.
