During this important National Volunteer Week, I cannot help but stop and be so thankful for the countless people who give to Washington County 4-H.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to the village of people who volunteer their time, offer their skills and donate financial contributions to the Washington County 4-H program.
My time as the 4-H county youth coordinator has been extremely rewarding and in part due to the dedicated and caring volunteers in this county.
There are currently 544 youth in kindergarten-12th grade who are involved in Clover Kids and 4-H in Washington County. The 4-H program would not and could not thrive in this way for so many young people without the commitment of our volunteers.
Thank you to all of our 4-H club leaders, 4-H and Youth Committee members, Extension Council members, Fair Board members, superintendents and project committees, project leaders, short-term volunteers, fair helpers and numerous other volunteers throughout the year.
I have no doubt that our volunteers enrich the lives of these youth in Washington County. The talents, skills and interests our volunteers share have a lasting impact on all of us.
They spend numerous hours working on tasks, such as organizing special events, helping members with 4-H projects, leading community service projects, educating and having fun with our youth. They work to make the best better for our young people.
The work of 4-H volunteers is continuous and isn’t always glorious with many details, deadlines, and changing needs of youth. Please be sure to celebrate National Volunteer Week by recognizing those who volunteer their time and energy in our youth – our future.
Thank you, once again, to all of those who generously give of themselves to help the youth of Washington County 4-H. You are the best.
