Chuck & Lorinda Inman have been involved with 4-H since they were club members. They coached and encouraged their three children, Coralie, Bradley and Katharina through the Dallas County 4-H program, participating in club and county activities. Their involvement with 4-H activities has continued to expand.
Lorinda served two terms on the Dallas County Extension Council. Both Lorinda and Chuck were involved in the campaigns to pass the referendum providing needed funding to offer Extension programs in the community and to county 4-H.
Lorinda also served on the county extension youth committee during her term on the extension council. She continued to serve on the youth committee with Chuck serving as a team. They have spent many hours working on 4-H programs through the years. She is also involved with the County 4-H Foundation, established to provide funding for community service projects and 4-H programs not otherwise funded.
Chuck’s involvement in 4-H continued as he went from helping at the club level to being a club leader. Chuck served as club leader for many years and continues today. Chuck supported the members in many ways including help with dog obedience classes. He has encouraged members to get involved with community service projects and he’s taking the entire club to the school plays.
Chuck and Lorinda worked for several years in the county 4-H food booth
during the county fair. They worked many hours helping with food quality and safety and coaching 4-H members working in the booth. They have helped 4-Hers learn food preparation, food safety, customer service and working with others in a busy environment. Chuck served as manager in the food booth as well as head chef.
Over the years they have been involved in FSQA training, helping with workshops, awards night, parades and displays, sponsoring trophies, the live stock sale, and many other activities to promote 4-H and help a new generation of 4-H youth.
Chuck and Lorinda are one of those couples that if you need a helping hand they are always there ready to help.
