The week of April 15 through April 21 is National Volunteer Week.
Adult volunteers play an important role in the 4-H program. Volunteers coordinate local community clubs and help to plan and conduct local, regional, state and national 4-H events.
It is because of the guidance these volunteers give that 4-H youth: Learn by doing, develop leadership and life skills, make new friends, give back to the community, build connections with others, and prepare, do and share.
So to our volunteers:
V aluable is the work you do.
O utstanding is how you always come through.
L oyal, sincere and full of good cheer,
U ntiring in your efforts throughout the year.
N otable are the contributions you make.
T rustworthy in every project you take.
E ager to reach your every goal.
E ffective in the way you fulfill your role.
R eady with a smile like a shining star,
S pecial and wonderful -- that's what you are.
We never could have asked for a group of more dedicated volunteers than those in the 4-H World.
Words cannot express how grateful we are to have them here. It is a definite privilege to work these
I know there are many, many volunteers who have donated time and talents to our county 4-H program, too many to put names to. I don't want to forget any one.
Thank you for all you do!
From club leaders to workshop presenters to Foundation donors and board members to Youth Committee members and Extension Council members to Fair Board members.
