Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame Inductees

2012 Wright County- Shirley Lager

 
Shirley Lager joined 4-H when she was 10 years old. At that time the kids could enroll in three project areas: food and nutrition, clothing and home improvement.  Every month they met at someone’s home for a meeting and demonstration.
 
Shirley did lots of cooking and sewing. One of her favorite things was playing the piano for the 4-H chorus and for the Fun Nite skits. She loved “Rally Days” when the Clarion school gym was full of kids as there were 16 clubs in the county back then.
       
She married the Fun Nite king and they had 6 daughters who were all in 4-H. She was a leader for the Lincoln Lassies League for 25 years. She helped with workshops, bake sales, gone to camps and on trips, donated to 4-H 400 and helped all her girls with projects and now is helping her grandchildren with projects.
 
She continues to attend several 4-H events and still is the number one helper along with her husband Johnny at the 4-H food stand at the Wright County Fair.
