Seven families were honored for their years of 4-H service.

Seven families have been recognized as North Dakota 4-H Century Families for 2018.

Any family whose years as 4-H members, leaders and/or volunteers add up to 100 or more is eligible to be named a North Dakota 4-H Century Family.

Those receiving the designation were:

  • Corey and LeAnn Hart family of Wells County, with 189 years of 4-H participation
  • Ralph and Deane Haugen family of Griggs County, with 189 years of 4-H participation
  • Larry and Janice Jones family of Wells County, with 162 years of 4-H participation
  • Myrene and Andrew Peterson family of Ransom County, with 160 years of 4-H participation
  • Richard and Elvie Jones family of Wells County, with 151 years of 4-H participation
  • John and Margaret Bollingberg family of Wells County, with 133 years of 4-H participation
  • Dale Opdahl family of Wells County, with 133 years of 4-H participation

They were honored during the North Dakota 4-H Foundation’s annual awards and donor recognition luncheon.

Also at that event, Anne Brien, a Rolette County 4-H’er from Rolla and an NDSU junior in Animal Sciences, described the impact 4-H has had on her life and the impact of volunteers in youth development. She shared the importance of her 4-H adult mentor and thanked volunteers for devoting their time, talents and treasures to 4-H. Brien said 4-H has helped her become the best version of herself.

Dennis Walsh, Fessenden, N.D., was thanked for serving 2 1/2 terms on the 4-H Foundation board, with much of his time on the Finance Management Committee.

Alice Amundson, Harwood, N.D., was recognized for 20 years as administrative staff for the foundation before her May retirement.

Penny Dale, North Dakota 4-H Foundation manager, reported that many generous donors contributed in 2017-18 to support a wide variety of 4-H programs across the state.
