According to The Tri County News, the 4-H Club became an active organization in our community on January 6, 1931. A meeting was held at the school house on that date. Glenn Anderson of Nevada, Iowa, presided at the meeting. The following officers were elected:
|Vice President||George A. Gaunt|
Lulu Wickham Cerka was one of the early club leaders.
It would be impossible in a history of this type to include a complete history of the 4-H. The membership changes from year to year. The Zearing club has been very active since its organization. Numerous prizes have been won by club members at fairs and exhibitions. Only a close study of the club records could produce an accurate and complete history of the local 4-H.
The Farm Bureau is another organization which would be very difficult to include in a history of this type. We can include a sketch.
The Farm Bureau became an active organization in our community in the early 1920's. The Auxiliary to the Farm Bureau was organized at the R. B. (Bert) Craft home on December 7, 1921. The following officers were elected:
|President||Daisy Fleming Couser|
|Vice President||Effie Guthrie Craft|
|Secretary and Treasurer||Desdamone Davisson Allen|
