Celebrate National Volunteer Week

Published: Friday, April 4, 2014 10:51 a.m. CDT

GREENFIELD — National Volunteer Week, April 6 to 12, is a week-long celebration that focuses on recognizing the work of volunteers.

Adair County Extension and Outreach is fortunate to have many caring and faithful adult volunteers. Each year, hundreds of Extension volunteers lend their support to youths through mentoring, skill development, citizenship and leadership while others lend their support by serving on committees and boards.

Whether in 4-H family homes across the county, in community settings, or in the Extension office, a tremendous “thank you” is extended to our volunteers for their extraordinary effort. Many of the programs and events in the Adair County 4-H program would not be possible without the support and dedication of many volunteers.

This year’s volunteer recognition theme is “Celebrate Service.” Adair County Extension and Outreach staff salute our volunteers now and throughout the year.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of National Volunteer Week, demonstrating the enduring importance of recognizing the country’s volunteers for their vital contributions.
