2010 Humboldt County - Bonnie Gates


Bonnie Gates served the Iowa 4-H program for approximately 35 years. Her roles were many, starting as an assistant 4-H leader when her daughter began her 4-H career. Diane was very active and continued through her senior year of high school.

After her daughter’s graduation, Bonnie continued to serve on the local and county level. She was a 4-H leader- organizing and chaperoning 4-H trips to a variety of places such as Mayo Clinic, Betty Crocker Kitchens, home tours, brewery’s and nature hikes. 

Bonnie brought young 4-H’ers into her home to work on sewing projects, cooking, candy making, etc. She judged exhibits at the Humboldt County fair, style shows, and also record books. She served several years on the 4-H Youth Committee and the Humboldt County Extension Council.

As she looks back over her 4-H day’s she wants to encourage all in life to do the best you can.
