Terry Branstad for 32 years in 4-H and the “Our Lady of Good Counsel Award” from Bishop Dunn awarded by the Dubuque Archdiocesan Council of Catholic Women.

Mary has dedicated her life to her family and 4-H.  Mary has given so much to the young people of the area.  She recently celebrated her 80th birthday and 45 years in 4-H.  Mary received a mountain of cards, many with messages from members telling stories of her influences in their lives.  Winneshiek County feels very blessed they have had Mary’s guidance and love for so many years.
