2004 Emmet County - Lawrence ThomsenLawrence Thomsen was a champion for the 4-H program in Emmet County for decades.  Larry was a local 4-H leader for the Twelve Mile Lakers club.  He was an active member on the 4-H and Youth Committee, serving as chairperson, Emmet County’s representative for multi county 4-H programming, and served on numerous committees.  In addition to those leadership roles, Larry rolled up his sleeves and dedicated nearly 30 years as a member of the beef committee, serving as Superintendent the majority of those years. Larry also served on the Emmet County Fair Board.

Larry Thomsen devoted many, many years to the 4-H program in Emmet
County.  He was a conscientious man whose quiet and yet extremely effective leadership style is missed by all who knew him.  Through his interest and dedication to the 4-H program, Emmet County 4-H is better because of Larry Thomsen.
