Paul & Betty UmbenhowerPaul and Betty Umbenhower have contributed to the local 4-H program throughout their lives but more so after their children started in 4-H.  During their children’s 4-H years they could be found helping with club functions and projects around the fairgrounds

For many years, Paul and Betty have supported the 4-H sale through their business, Chariton Feed and Grain.  The Umbenhowers opened Chariton Feed and Grain in 1969 and still offer bag feed, seed and miscellaneous business. 

Paul served on the local fair board and announced the county swine show for many years.  In addition, Paul and Betty are always more than happy to help wherever needed. 

In recent years, the Umbenhowers could be found watching their grandchildren participate in the 4-H program and hopefully in the future their great-grandchildren will have the opportunity to also participate.

In 2010, Paul and Betty were awarded the Fair Board Volunteer Award for their contributions to the 4-H program.
