Wayne County would like to introduce Dan and Cheryl Goretska as our 2018 Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame inductees.
We recognize Dan and Cheryl for their numerous contributions they have given on behalf of the Wayne County Fair and 4H youth.
Beginning in 1977, Cheryl served as leader for the all-girls club, Jefferson Clay Livewires. She then later became leader of the Benton Battlers and Dan began assisting in 1982. Both served as club leaders for all 4 of their children until 2002. Yes, Cheryl served a total of 25 years as a club leader!
Both were very active in the fair board and could be found helping with various activities during the fair as well as other events throughout the year. Both are longtime supporters of the Wayne County Fair; in 1997 they began to co-sponsor all 3 Champion Market Animal belt buckles and continue to do so today.
Dan and Cheryl now enjoy watching their grandchildren exhibit livestock at various shows across the Midwest.
