This is National 4-H Week.
It’s a week not only to highlight all the good that 4-H members are doing, but also the many volunteers who put in extra hours to make the program what it is.
Steve Schwietert was chosen as Delaware County’s inductee for the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame this year, inducted during a ceremony at the Iowa State Fair.
The Delaware County 4-H program has been a part of Schwietert’s life for many years, beginning as a 4-Her and continuing into his adult life as a 4-H volunteer.
And Schwietert is proud that his daughters followed in his footsteps.
Schwietert says 4-H is an incredible program that has the potential to stay with you for a lifetime.
National 4-H Week wraps up on Sunday.
