Carl Eklund supported the ideals of 4-H youth development for over nineteen years in Union County. While he was not in 4-H himself he supported the program as his five grandchildren developed and applied the life skills learned through 4-H in the ‘50’s and ‘60’s.
As member and president of the county fairboard he was adamant about the fair experience being one of learning and fun for all citizens of Union County but particularly for 4-H members. He was a well-known cattle producer, community supporter and advocate for 4-H experiences for youth.
