Gary was a vital part of the Winnebago County extension office for over 20 years while he served on the Extension Council, 5 of those years as Extension Council Chair. He was also an active member of the Winnebago County Fair Board for several years.
During his time, he went above and beyond to assist staff and county programs. Even after resigning from his position as Council Chair in 2016, Gary has continued to help Extension staff with programing needs and often stops in to visit.
You may not always see Gary at an event, but he was and continues to be a vital source behind the scenes to make our county events run smoothly and effectively.
His “to-do” list was never cut and dried. It ranged from executive decisions as council chair to hauling hay bales and corn for our annual Fall Festival, as well as helping staff or county volunteers.
Gary believes strongly in the Extension Mission and the 4-H program and is always willing to help educate and promote 4-H to the youth of Winnebago County.
