Thank You, Volunteers!

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.

Thank you all for being key to our success.  It was a pleasure to celebrate so many wonderful individuals, members, clubs and 4-H supporters at our annual 4-H Volunteer Appreciation Dinner.  Congratulations to Sharon Francis, 4-H Volunteer of the Year and Clermont County Juvenile Court & Ohio State Highway Patrol Batavia Post, Friends of 4-H Award recipients!

    

We appreciate our volunteers and all they do to make Clermont County 4-H successful!

 

 

 

You’re the key…

We’re excited to come together next week to celebrate our accomplishments and those who make it all possible!  Don’t forget to be key in helping others.  We’re collecting donations from the four H’s to support under-served youth in our community.
