Wood County 4-H Honors Members and Leaders
Wood County 4-H celebrated their 4-H members and volunteer leaders at their annual Awards Banquet on November 4, 2014 at the Butcher Bend 4-H Campground. The event was sponsored by Wesbanco.
This year Wood County 4-H honored their Friend of 4-H the South Parkersburg Lowe’s Store #2246. Thanks to the support of Lowe’s and service by their employees, the Wood County 4-H Camp has seen some much needed improvements. Lowe’s donated more than $1,600 in product and countless hours of volunteer time.
Volunteer Leaders were honored for their time, commitment and service to the youth of Wood County 4-H. These individuals are the heart of the 4-H program and give numerous hours each year at 4-H camps, clubs, youth service, and educational events. Our outstanding honorees for the evening were Loretta Elliott for 45 years of dedicated service to Wood County 4-H and Linda Dearth, outstanding 4-H leader for 2014. Both volunteers were recognized at the State 4-H Camp at Jackson’s Mill.
Wood County 4-H members received several awards and recognitions for outstanding work in 2014. Royalty Winners were announced. Steffan Affolter was named King. Toni Murphy was named Queen. Prince for this year is Austin Kent, and Princess is Emma Daley.
