Mark and Mary Cutler of Coin, Iowa have been involved with the 4-H program since childhood and remain strong supporters of the Page County 4-H program and the Iowa 4-H Foundation.
Growing up, Mary was a member of the West Walnut Ever Ready Girls 4-H club in Fremont County for nine years. Mark was a member of the Shenandoah Teamsters Boys 4-H club for nine years, as well.
As young parents, Mark and Mary assisted their son, Michael, with numerous 4-H projects and enjoyed watching him learn, grow and achieve many goals in his static exhibits and livestock project areas.
The Cutlers have served in several different capacities in Page County 4-H since 1990. Over the last 25 years, Mark has volunteered as a fair board member, a co-fair manager, an assistant superintendent, a 4-H leader and a fair manager.
Mary has volunteered as a 4-H leader, the Page County 4-H Alumni/Honorary Association president and is currently serving as the Page County Fair 4-H static exhibit superintendent.
They are both members of the Page County 4-H Alumni/Honorary Association. Mark's favorite childhood 4-H memory is showing swine at the Iowa State Fair. Mary's favorite childhood 4-H memory is when the family dog ate her decorated cake exhibit on judging day, as she packed the car with her other 4-H exhibits.
The couple shares 63 years of involvement in the Iowa 4-H Program. The time has passed very quickly and they hold on to many great memories. However, the lasting friendships with the many other loyal volunteers and the tremendous pride in the local Page County 4-H Program will continue for many years.
