Heart of 4-H Award Winners 2013
January. Kent Frobish. Five years ago, Kent started helping with his daughter’s various horse clubs. He is in his fourth year on 4-H Council and has a crucial role on the food booth committee. The 4-H food booth at the Lancaster County Super Fair is Council’s primary fundraiser. Kent is currently treasurer of 4-H Council.
"I like being a 4-H volunteer because it allows me to be involved in activities with my kids," says Kent. "I have had the pleasure meeting and working with so many parents who want to promote the 4-H values to their children and community. 4-H is a wonderful program that greatly benefits our community and state. The 4-H food booth is lots of hard work, but a thoroughly enjoyable time with Extension staff, adult volunteers, and 4-H kids. Making thousands of bags of cotton candy has a way of bring people together. It is a sweet way to give back to the community."
February. Laurie Bellinghausen. She has volunteered with the South Prairie Wranglers 4-H Club rabbit project for five years, and recently became rabbit project club leader. Laurie has been on the Lancaster County 4-H Rabbit Volunteers in Program Service (VIPS) Committee for three years and currently serves as vice president. She assists with the spring rabbit shows and fall rabbit clinics. Laurie also helps with the 4-H Rabbit Shows at the Lancaster County Super Fair and is a co-superintendent of the Rabbit Quiz and Rabbit Races.
Laurie was nominated by Shari Green and Cindy Zimmer. Shari says, "She is a dedicated 4-H leader, volunteering many tireless hours with the rabbit project area at the Lancaster County Fair. Laurie is always willing to take on volunteer duties others might not want to do, such as writing comments at fair, ordering food, etc." Cindy says, "Laurie is a great leader. She goes above and beyond to help kids learn about rabbits."
Laurie says, "I want to help our youth succeed with their projects and grow independently. Being a 4-H volunteer is very rewarding and fun. The friendships that have been made are priceless. My favorite experience as a 4-H volunteer has been watching the youth grow and mature into mentors themselves, helping the younger or new 4-H youth with projects, support, and friendship."
