Wayne County would like to introduce Rick and Page Mitteness as our 4-H Hall of Fame recipients for the 2020 Iowa State Fair. We would like to recognize Rick and Page for the numerous contributions they have given on behalf of the Wayne County Fair and 4-H youth.
The couple have been a part of Wayne County 4-H and the Wayne County Fair since coming to Southern Iowa and making it their home. They have resided on the family farm for many years now, raising their son, and now enjoying the company of their grandchildren. Rick and Page certainly have a love for their family, the land, and livestock. The couple exemplifies what it is to be a good neighbor and have been recognized by WHO radio with the Gary Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award.
Both served on the Wayne County 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; Rick has served as the Scales Superintendent for several years and continues to do so today. The couple sponsor awards for the Champion Angus Steer, Champion Angus Heifer, Grand Champion Market Beef, Grand Champion Market Lamb, Junior Sheep Showmanship, and Outstanding 4-H Recycled Garment at the Wayne County Fair.
Wayne County is proud to recognize Rick and Page who care about the advancement of the Wayne County 4-H Program and all the youth it serves.
