A special guest was new 4-H county agent, Cathy Brockhoff. The tour ended with a potluck dinner at the Steve Krysztof home.
The meeting was held after dinner. Roll call was "What are you taking to the fair?" Emily James gave a talk on her horse project.
Because of the fair, there will not be an August meeting, so the next meeting will be at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 6, at Ives Chapel Methodist Church. An election of officers will be held. Refreshments, clean-up and set-up will be done by the Seele, Sigvaldson and Krysztof families.
