County proclaims National Volunteer Day
Young County Commissioner’s Court signed a proclamation on Monday recognizing Young County 4-H volunteers and the hours they have committed to its clubs and programs.
“Each year thousands of volunteers donate their time, energy and even their own finances in some cases to support local 4-H programs,” Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Agent Penny Berend said.
Berend brought some Young County 4-H volunteers with her to be recognized for all they do including the new archery club coaches Blake Seyler, Thomas Hernandez and David Cook. The trio started volunteering in February and have been attending training outside the county recently.
“Our members have increased probably close to 20% due to the project area of our archery project,” Berend said. “So, it is a really successful project happening at the moment due to these three gentlemen.”
Other volunteers who were recognized during the meeting include Lone Star 4-H Club Manager Christine Richards, Renewed 4-H Club Manager Jamie Buse, 4-H Raffle Coordinator Joe Bob Whittaker and trap and Shotgun Coach Charlie Rogers.
