This year, the Kelliher FCCLA chapter's theme is Cross the Line and Be Extraordinary. We want our old and new members alike to not be ordinary, but extraordinary leaders and motivators. This year we have a total of 29 members! The new officers for the 2011-2012 year are as follows:
President -- Johanna Weidenborner
Vice president -- Cassie Vollhaber
Secretary/Treasurer -- Katey Lutz
Historians -- Shelene Head, Mark Geerdes and Kelly Heck.
Our first official meeting was a potluck supper where all of our new members and their parents were invited to come and celebrate the beginning of a new year. At this meeting, the new officers were installed.
This fall, we also attended Region Meeting at the University of Minnesota-Crookston. The state theme was introduced there, which is Spark Your Motivation, Ignite Our Determination.
At the meeting, we got to listen to an aspiring actor from New York, attend interesting and informing sessions put on by our own region officers and hear a new and upcoming band from Ada-Borup: Then Fall! It was an exciting experience. Another event this fall was the sponsoring of a haunted house at our Halloween festival.
This year, as always, members will be doing STAR event projects. Some events you can look forward to be hearing about in the future are: Breast Cancer Awareness, Concussions, Domestic Violence, Recycling Projects, Personal Health Records, the School wide Positive Behavior Challenge, Dr. Suess' Birthday and co-sponsoring the annual Kelliher Easter Egg Hunt.
