Rangers learn about health care

BERLIN CENTER – At the April meeting of Western Reserve Rangers 4-H Club, President Tiffany Voland congratulated her brother Robert who recently received a four-year scholarship to Youngstown State University.

Remi Mikan introduced club advisor Marlene Mikan who related information about the variety of health and nursing careers that are available today. Other Ranger 4-H Club advisors with nursing degrees include Karen Day, Robin and Steve Reph, Amelia Shrader and soon to be nursing graduate Amanda Majirsky.

Junior Fair Board members Andy Prosser, Katie Prosser, Karl Reph and Erin Styka shared events from the Metro Parks Farm “baby shower” where they volunteered recently. Erin explained that the purpose of this event is to introduce baby animals to children and to allow them to see first hand agriculture at work in Mahoning County.

Members and parents were reminded of these summer judging events: Clothing Judging and the Fashion Revue on July 7 at the Canfield Presbyterian Church, the Small Projects Judging Event in the Hay and Grain Building on the Canfield Fairgrounds on July 7 and Food and Nutrition Judging on July 21 at the Canfield Presbyterian Church.

Tiffany reported that the County 4-H Fashion Board selected “Elegance” as the theme for the 2014 Fashion Revue. Health and Safety Officers Camille Kirk, Olivia Reph and William Reph gave health tips on eating healthy, avoiding malnutrition and keeping the flu bug away.

Following the meeting Recreation Leaders Olivia Haid and Camille Kirk had an indoor egg hunt for everyone. Western Reserve Rangers will be marching in the Berlin Township Memorial Day Parade on Sunday, May 25. The Rangers will meet at 7 p.m. May 8.
