Ray & Rosemary Zellmer have combined to give over 50 years of service to the Cass County 4-H program as parents, leaders, volunteers and board members.
In 1982, Ray joined the Cass County Fairboard. He was elected as Treasurer of the group in 1994 and continues to hold that office. Ray volunteers a lot of his time during the summer to make sure everything is up and running for fair week. During county fair Ray can be found organizing commercial exhibits, running the register at the foodstand and taking care of bills and deposits. Ray’s responsibilities with the Cass County Fairboard extend beyond fair as he is following up on reports and financial responsibilities throughout the year.
Rosemary has served as a 4-H leader in Cass County for 29 years. She is currently the Organizational Leader of the G & L Clovers 4-H Club and has served on the Youth Action Committee. In addition, Rosemary serves as the Award Superintendent at County Fair. She is responsible for getting all of the trophy’s, plaques and ribbons to the livestock shows and award presentations.
Ray and Rosemary live in Wiota. They have one grown son, Rusty, who was an active 4-H’er in Cass County.
