Grow and Share OHCE May meeting


Grow and Share OHCE met on Monday, May 4, at 6:30 p.m. This meeting was also to celebrate OHCE Week with each member participating in the Virtual Happy Hour with a soda of her choice. The meeting was called to order and all present recited the flag salute. Ten members present answered roll call to, “Name a fun (arts) event in northwest Oklahoma.” Because of the Zoom format of the meeting there were ten guests present, as members were traveling in vehicles to various locations. The group welcomed Shannon McDaniel as a new member in honor of OHCE Week. Minutes for the April meeting were approved and the treasurer's report was given. No communications were received.

Under the resource management committee report, JoDe gave an update on her Facebook post about Earth Day with likes and shares. Janet reported that newspaper articles referred to Earth Day proclamations that were signed by the mayor of the City of Alva Council meeting and by the Woods County commissioners at their meeting. Christi shared the entries for the fifth grade Earth Day poster places for each class and also a grand prize winner. Christi and Janet will handle getting prizes to the winners and Menagerie passes to all participants.

Unfinished business included a discussion of planting of flowers at a local nursing home in honor of OHCE Week and to meet a goal for the resource management committee. Janet volunteered to plant at Share Nursing Home and Elizabeth volunteered to plant at Beadles Nursing Home. The community garden was discussed with two members stating that they had volunteered to adopt pots of vegetables. Fair items for the Woods County Fair were also discussed with all items but one being selected. It was also noted that the pecan pie must be made and donated for the pie sale even is it is not judged in the club booth. Amanda volunteered to make the pecan pie.

The only item under new business was the 4-H camp that had been scheduled for June. Janet will contact Susan to see if it is still scheduled. The leader's training for June is open, so the group decided to have the lesson that was scheduled for April on herb gardening.

Mary Hamilton gave the lesson on “Exploring the Arts.” She gave great information on the Nescatunga Arts Festival in Alva. It has been rescheduled for Aug. 8. Janet gave a mini-lesson on the 2020 Census and encouraged members to respond to the census if they had not already done so. The meeting adjourned to the June 9 meeting being at the Fireside Room of the Cherokee Strip Museum with the time to be determined. Colleen will be hostess.
