Recognition Night continues to be a high point of the 4-H year -- An opportunity to recognize young people and 4-H volunteers for their accomplishments, their commitment and their character.
On Tuesday, November 7, more than 400 4-H members and volunteers, their families and community supporters were in attendance as we congratulated those who committed to clearer thinking, greater loyalty, larger service, and better living in their 4-H efforts this past year.
Congratulations to our "Friend of 4-H" Winners!
