Lorna Baldner Grow has been a 4-H leader for 39 years. She was a 4-H member herself, and her 4 children were also 4-H’ers. She estimates that she has had over 400 4-H’ers in her clubs over the years, which is her favorite part of volunteering in the 4-H program.
Lorna also volunteers at county communications day where 70 – 80% of her club participates every year. She has also led county workshops on photography, babysitting, and money management, to name a few. She is constantly busy during the county fair since her club has long held the responsibility of taking all the champion pictures. Lorna keeps herself involved in learning and encourages others by attending or leading workshops at the State Leader Retreat and Volunteer Forums.
Lorna takes a group from her club to volunteer at the Iowa State Fair during set up. We congratulate and thank Lorna for her continued and life long involvement in 4-H.
