2014 Bernie Heffern Memorial 4-H Family Award

Bob and Gloria Hanson were awarded with the 2014 Bernie Heffern Memorial 4-H Family Award before the 4-H/FFA Livestock Auction on  Sunday, July 20 by the Bob and Bernie Heffern family.  The award was created by the Heffern family in memory of Bernie Heffern who passed away in 2008.  Bernie was very passionate about all areas of 4-H, and its importance in the lives of youth and their families.  She and her husband, Bob, were inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame in 2007 for their lifelong dedication to 4-H.  Each year during fair week, the Allamakee County Fair Board and the Heffern family selects a family who emulates the Heffern family attitude of helping others, working well with each other, and going above and beyond for the fair. 
Bob and Gloria’s children were involved in 4-H growing up.  They have been an active 4-H Family for many years.  Bob is a member of the Allamakee County Fairboard and 4-H assistant dairy superintendent.  Gloria was a member of the Youth Development Committee and has served as a conference judging superintendent and on the appreciation supper committee.  Along with bringing the many pies to the 4-H Foodstand during fair week.
Congratulations Bob and Gloria!
