Iowa 4-H Alumni Reunions Planned for State Fair

AMES, Iowa -- Two reunions of Iowa 4-H alumni will be held during the Iowa State Fair. Both reunions, on Wednesday, Aug. 13 and Saturday, Aug. 16, will be held in the 4-H Exhibit Building.

Retired Iowa State University (ISU) Extension 4-H Youth Development staff and celebrity alumni will attend the events, where alumni can share their favorite memories and renew old acquaintances.

C.J. Gauger, retired state 4-H leader, and Roy Hougen and Glen Thompson, retired state 4-H staff members, will host the Aug. 13 reunion from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Shirley Stakey and Don Goering, retired state 4-H staff members, will host the Aug. 16 reunion from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

All alumni are invited to attend either of the reunions or to simply stop by the 4-H Exhibit Building to visit. The first 500 alumni to register at each reunion will receive a collectible gift from the Iowa 4-H Foundation.

"This is an excellent opportunity for 4-H alumni to see how 4-H has continued to grow in Iowa," said Denise Schwab, ISU Extension 4-H youth development specialist.

The reunions are sponsored by the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, the Iowa 4-H Foundation and Vista Bakery.
