Volunteer

Thank You!
As our staff in the office are preparing for the 2017 Emmet County Fair and all of the other events for summer, we are reminded again that without our volunteers, these events simply wouldn’t take place! We are looking forward to the upcoming Clover Knowledge Escapade and Sheep/Meat Goat Weigh In. These are a few examples of events that could not happen without great groups of volunteers being there to make sure things run smoothly and get done correctly. Let us not forget our great 4-H club and project group leaders—without the endless hours they volunteer to organize the 4-H clubs and groups in our county, there would be no 4-H program. Then, we think of the great High School and Junior High aged youth who volunteer with so many programs that Extension does! We couldn’t do it without you all!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
 
4-H VOLUNTEERS - Interested in becoing a 4-H volunteer?
We need to meet our potential volunteers before we can send them out to serve the youth in Emmet County.  You will need to schedule a time to come and meet with our 4-H staff at the Extension Office.  At this meeting we will answer all of your questions, provide you with the necessary materials to do your job, and acquaint you with our office.  Our Coordinator is just a phone call or e-mail away.
