00ursda00, October,4 00010 Students Youth Kimball Kruisers T7 1"kimball schods Menu met Oct. 3 The Kimball Kruisers 4-H Club met Sunday, Oct. 3, at St. Anne's Church in Kimball, starting a new 4-H year. New members and their families were welcomed at the meet- ing, and all enjoyed pizza. It was great to see many new faces! We are proud to be the largest 4-H club in the Meeker County Federation. For an opening activity with current and new members, Marcia Hilbert had the kids participate in a team build- ing activity - how each of the 4-H members is important to the club. Before the meeting, many mem- bers cleaned ditches on the "Golf ,Course Road." Thanks to all who helped; it was a good turn-out. Five families had also spent part of the afternoon harvesting pumpkins from the club's community garden plot by Bormans. Thanks also to these families. We received the club's 4-H cal- endar for the coming year. Lots of fun activities are planned, like ski- ing at Powder Ridge and roller skat- ing, with many guests speaking about project areas so we hope to see everyone participate. The members voted on a com- munity project. Kimball Kruisers members will, once again, deco- rate Willow Creek Park with Christ- mas lights during the holiday sea- son. We will also be involved with activities when the Holiday Train makes a Kimball stop in December. To celebrate National 4-H Week, Oct. 3-10, all elementary and high school members will wear their 4-H T-shirts to school on Wednes- day, Oct. 6.

Parents report many positive things after taking this class. Some children seem to sleep better and longer, some are able to manage gas and stomach discom- fort better, and all say that it is just nice to be touching and bringing a calming peace to their child.

Toddler Gym Time: While the babies are enjoying their mas- sage, the older siblings can play in the gym with the other parent or a grandparent. We will have fun stations in the gym, followed by a cool down snack. When we have two things going on in the same place and at the same time, why not bring the whole family?
