Green Valley - Trust Your Friends

 By: Owen B., Club Reporter 

Green Valley held its club meeting on May 9, 2022, at Rolling Meadows Dairy Barn. After the business meeting, club members gathered to play a game. It involved members putting on a mask, walking a line with obstacles, and having another club member direct them, so they did not step on the objects in front of them. We all had a lot of fun doing this activity.
