The Lariat Loopers gathered at the Heath Home on February 21, 2015. There were 20 members present for the meeting. The club met to discuss the Chili Cook-off at the Colome American Legion on February 28, 2015. Our club made the “Fair” Chili that included lamburger and sausage from the animals shown at fair and then homeraised beef. A committee was selected to design the t-shirts. The club also talked about a date to do the bi-annual trash pickup on the highway. While at the meeting the club also gathered all donations that were to be sent to the Nordby Hall in Huron. The Nordby Hall replaces the old Clover Hall at Huron. Twenty-seven members donated money to this project. Donations totaled $1320, some members sold half and half tickets at the Colome football games and most donated money from their Premium Check at the Mid-Dakota Fair. Three members gave demonstrations at the end of the evening. Brandon Moody demonstrated on how to tie a square knot with a scarf, Zoe Harris gave a demonstration on solar energy and the final demonstration was caring for a turtle by Selah Harris.
