This year’s choice for Bremer County regarding the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame is a married couple that has impacted adults and youth throughout the Bremer County 4-H program. Randy and Dawn Bergmann have been an influential volunteers that can always be relied on to lend a helping hand, great advice, and a will to pitch in and help when needed.
This couple started out their 4-H story with Dawn in the N.R.G. then Do –R –Best Clubs and Randy in the Townline Cowboys club. They since have grown to be great volunteers for the community, whether it be working in Snak Shak, volunteering as a superintendent, or organizing a great club program for Townline 4-H Club for fifteen years. They also extended their talents to State Fair Superintendent, Clover Kid Superintendent, and Rabbit Superintendent. This couple has been influential and irreplaceable when it comes to helping at fair, treading new waters into new developments for 4-H, and being flexible and helping the program grow.
Randy and Dawn are also very active in their church and volunteerism. Before becoming leaders, they were Luther League Sponsors at St. John Lutheran Church Western Douglas for thirteen years. This type of volunteering, whether it be church or 4-H, is a family involvement--helping their kids with 4-H projects (1990-2005) or family members at the Bremer County Cattlemen’s Shelter. The Bergmann family can be found working together!
The support this couple gives to the program is fantastic and the quality of volunteerism cannot be unnoticed. Bremer County is proud to present Randy and Dawn for the 2011 Iowa Hall of Fame.
